nbn™ (National Broadband Network)

Australia’s new broadband network 

The National Broadband Network (nbn™) network is Australia’s new landline phone and internet network, designed to provide you with access to fast and reliable phone and internet services no matter where you live. 

It will give us all the opportunity to do more. Whether working or playing, learning, or just having fun, the nbn™ network will be a part of everyday life for decades to come.

The nbn™ network is rolling out progressively across the City of Marion. The 'when can I connect', 'what type of technology am I geeting', and what do i need to do to connect to nbn™ are unique to your address. Check with nbn using the handy "check your address" services on the NBN website.

The nbn™ will be mailing residents and businesses when you are able to switch to the nbn™ network, with information about what to do next. 

You can also find out when the nbn™ network is available by checking your address on the NBN website or by calling 1800 687 626.

* 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 nbn’s control like your equipment quality, software broadband plans and how your service provider designs its network.

Five things you need to know, even if you only have a landline phone:
  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.

nbn™ for business

Australia's digital economy demands a fast and reliable network.

Enabling access to new markets, creating opportunity to reduce costs and drive innovation, as well as gaining competitive edge on the global stage.  The nbn™ network is Australia’s new landline phone and internet network, designed to support future economic and social growth.

Here’s how to move to the nbn™ network:

  1. Contact your preferred service provider
    You won’t be connected to the nbn™ network automatically, so contact your preferred internet service provider to discuss your requirements and select the most appropriate plan for your business needs.
    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.
  2. Check your equipment compatibility
    It’s important for your device provider to understand the compatibility of your existing devices with the new network.  Your provider can help minimise a break in service as your area is switched to the nbn network.
