Will the NBN connect every address?
Get ready Australia: Superfast internet and reliable home phone services are coming your way! NBN Co is connecting more homes and businesses every day. By the time the NBN rollout is complete, almost all Australians will be connected. And because NBN Co is ramping up its rollout schedule by using a mix of different technologies, you’ll be enjoying superfast broadband even sooner!
But when do I get NBN?
Our address checker comes in pretty handy when you want to know when your place will be connected to the NBN. Simply pop your address into our handy address checker and you’ll get all the facts about when NBN will be available to you.
When you let us know your address, we can keep you in the loop on all things NBN. You’ll get updates about stuff like when the NBN becomes available at your place and what you need to do when the time comes to connect.
Even if you forget to check your email (and by that we mean never check it), NBN Co will send you a friendly reminder by direct mail when the time comes to connect. They’ll let you know whether your property will be connected to fibre technology, wireless or satellite infrastructure.
The most important thing to remember is that connecting to the NBN is not automatic. But Optus can make it super easy for you!. Just give us a call on 1300 652 080 or drop into one of our 300+ retail stores to find out how!
And don’t forget, once NBN fibre is available at your place, you’ll have 18 months to connect to the NBN before the old copper network is switched off. So it’s pretty important to arrange your connection as soon as it’s available in your area (use our address checker anytime).
If you’re renting, you’ll also have 18 months to switch. So find out now when the NBN will be available at your place and have a chat with your landlord about connecting. Check with them that they’re happy for you to have the NBN equipment installed inside and outside the property. Then chat with us to get the ball rolling.
Sign me up, Optus, I’m ready for NBN
Well, aren’t you an eager one? We like your style! Give us a call on 1300 652 080 or come chat with us at one of our 300+ retail stores so we can set you up. To stay ahead of the game, have a think about how you and your family use the internet before you chat with us.
