  • Smooth video conferencing takes the frustration out of face to face contact with loved ones or work colleagues

  • Kids can unlock their full potential by having fast access to online educational tools

  • Access to a fast connection can help businesses and employees enhance productivity

Steps to Connect

  1. Check your address: Find out if the nbn™ network is available at your address, visit nbn.com.au

  2. Register for updates: If the nbn™ network is not yet available, register for email updates.

  3. nbn will let you know: Once you’ve registered for updates with nbn, they’ll email you when your home or business is ready to connect. Once you have confirmation that you can switch to the nbn™ network, you will have 18 months to move your services to the nbn™ network before the existing network is switched off.

  4. Choose the right plan: You can connect to the nbn™ network through a range of providers offering a choice of nbn™ plans. When selecting your plan, keep in mind that 25Mbps or above is considered a superfast broadband speed^.

  5. Contact your service provider: Switching is not automatic, so contact a phone or internet service provider.

  6. Switch before disconnection: It’s a good idea to switch to the nbn™ network well before your disconnection date to allow time for your order to be processed, and for installation, if applicable. (Standard installation time is approximately 3.5 hours.)

^ Superfast means wholesale download speed above 25 Mbps as defined by the ACCC.

† Your experience, including the speeds actually achieved over the nbn™ network, depends on the technology over which services are delivered to your premises and some factors outside our control (like your equipment quality, software, broadband plans and how your service provider designs its network).
