Australia’s broadband network

Australia’s broadband network

Australia’s new broadband network is rolling out across the City of Whyalla.

The 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. The nbn™ network can open up many opportunities for homes and businesses:

  • Experience fast downloads, with multiple people and devices operating in the home or business at the same time
  • 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

Check your address now at www.nbnco.com.au to see if the nbn™ network is available at your premises, or to register with nbn and receive updates.

Local update

The nbn™ network is on its way to the City of Whyalla, with Fixed Line (Fibre to the Node) construction now underway. The city is being built in four zones, with the first of these zones expected to be “ready for service” in early 2017. The remaining three zones will follow shortly after, meaning residents and business owners in Whyalla should be enjoying all the benefits of fast and reliable internet from the middle of 2017.

To check your eligibility, register for updates, or for more information, visit www.nbnco.com.au, free call 1800 687 626, email info@nbnco.com.au or speak with your phone or internet provider.

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.

For more information visit www.nbnco.com.au, free call 1800 687 626 between 7.30am and 7.30pm, email info@nbnco.com.au or speak with your phone or internet provider.

Switching to the nbn™ network

Switching to the nbn™ network isn’t automatic. To switch to the nbn™:

  1. Contact a phone or internet provider
  2. Ask about switching your phone or internet to the nbn™ network
  3. Check your equipment compatibility
  4. Choose a plan that suits your needs

In Whyalla, once the nbn™ network is available, you’ll need to move your phone and internet services to the network to make sure they continue working.  Check with your service provider to find out whether your services will be affected.
