When will I get nbn

NBN and nbn rollout

It’s a question that a lot of people have been asking especially those who stream video, movies and audio often. The nbn™ rollout is in the middle of installing more than 25,000 connections each week and will connect one in three Australian homes and businesses.

When will the nbn come to my suburb?

The nbn is definitely on its way, but is armed with a mammoth task of connecting millions of homes and businesses across Australia. There’s no way that any neighbourhood can jump the queue or gets preferential treatment to go to the top of the list. But we can help you stay up-to-date with what's happening in your area with the National Broadband Network.

When will my home be connected to the nbn?

It may seem simple, but it’s a complicated process to connect every home across Australia. Each suburb has multiple networks that are made of underground and overhead fibre cables. Not every home will have access to the same types of cables or infrastructure so the entire process takes time.

The best way to stay across updates on when the NBN is accessible at your home or business is check your address with our nbn rollout map. It displays the most up-to-date information on whether the rollout has begun, if it’s due to commence or if the nbn is now available for you to join.

Simply type in your address into the Optus NBN address checker you’ll be able to see is what stage the rollout is at plus a notification on if it’s not available, if it’s in preparation, if the build has started or if it’s available.

What type of nbn connection will I have?

  • Fibre to the Premises (FttP - also known as Fibre to the Home)
  • Fibre to the Node (FttN)
  • Fibre to the Basement (FttB)
  • Hybrid fibre-coaxial (HFC) in the future

Some Aussies will also connect to the NBN via wireless or satellite technologies.

To check which technology will be available at your place, use our address checker.

What do I do now that nbn is in my area?

When you're ready to connect, that's certainly something we can help you with. Give us a call on 1300 652 080 and we’ll chat about how you, your family or business, typically use the internet. It will help us offer the right Optus NBN plan for your needs. If you just want to check a few emails and do online banking, you won't need the same amount of data and speed as a serious online gamer.
