What is a Replacement modem?

A replacement modem will be used to determine if the existing modem is faulty. The modem is pre-configured and is plug and play for NBN, WBB and ADSL service. The retail cost of the modem + postage will be added to your account and will appear on your next invoice.

The replacement modem to be sent out will be of the same brand and model as the original modem, except for Netcomm.

How long is my warranty period?

The warranty of your modem commences from the date of purchase valid for 1 year.

Within Warranty What to expect?

To reverse the cost of the modem replacement, the defective modem (if the issue was resolved) should be returned to SpinTel using the Registered post within 30 days.

Failure to return the hardware within 30 days, the modem + postage fee will appear as a valid charge on your invoice.

Outside Warranty What to do?

To help you isolate the issue, we can send a modem for testing purposes even if your modem is no longer covered by warranty.

If the existing hardware turns out to be not faulty, you must return the replacement hardware in the same condition it was received (with all cables, power supply and the original packaging) and only the shipping fee will be charged.

If the replacement modem rectifies the issue, you may opt to keep the replacement modem and both hardware and postage fee applies.

How long does it take for the Replacement modem to arrive?

Expect the modem to arrive 1-2 business days from the date the order was placed. A courtesy email will be sent to keep you posted along with the tracking details.

Once available, you may visit the StarTrack website to trace the delivery or through the TOLL website (if you have a toll tracking number as below) and enter the shipment number indicated.
