Five things you need to know
1. What’s the nbn™ network?
The nbn™ network is Australia’s exciting new landline phone and internet network designed to provide you with access to fast, reliable phone and internet services, wherever you live.
2. Why do we need it?
With so many connected devices now in the home and workplace, the way we access and use data has changed forever. A fast broadband network will ensure Australia is ready for the next generation of connected homes and businesses.
3. What do I need to do?
In most areas, once the nbn™ network is available, you’ll need to move your phone and internet services to it to make sure they continue working. Check with your service provider to find out whether your services will be affected.
4. How can I get the nbn™ network?
As a wholesaler, nbn doesn’t sell directly to the public. That means once it’s in your area, you’ll need to talk to a phone or internet provider about moving your services. Whether you’re a home, or business user, they won’t be switched over automatically. To make the switch, call a phone or internet provider and ask about moving to a plan that uses the nbn™ network.
5. What if I don’t make the switch?
The nbn™ network rollout affects almost all of us, with access expected to be available to 8 million homes and businesses by 2020. Most people will need to act to stay connected, even if they just have a landline phone.
