Getting NBN: The story of superfast internet

Once upon a time, there was a fibre optic cable that had one mission - to get you connected to superfast broadband internet.

And at Optus, we're here to make sure you get your 'happily ever after', faster!

So let's write your superfast internet story. Keen? Let's get started. You can get to know our main character, the National Broadband Network.

Why do I need NBN?

Times are changing. And here at Optus, we believe it's important to be change-ready, especially considering the rapid advance of technology. Would you imagined ten years ago that you would be swapping all your DVDs and CDs for streaming data online? #mindblown

NBN is about keeping up with the advancements in our digital world.

So the first step on your journey to lightning-fast internet is saying goodbye to ADSL and hello to NBN.

And now, once the rollout has reached you, it's time to get connected so you can start subscribing to all the things you love, like unlimited entertainment, superfast!

How does the NBN rollout work?

It's time to set the scene and connect the whole country!

Getting Australia connected to superfast NBN is a big task, but it's well underway and it won't be long before the NBN rollout knocks at your door! When nbn updates its rollout list, we update our local pages so you know how the rollout is going in your area.

The easiest way to check if your place is NBN-ready is to search your address on the NBN map. Get all the rolling coverage of the NBN rollout and the latest information when you sign up for our NBN news updates.

How do I get connected to NBN?

Ok. I'm keen to start my adventure! Whoa. Easy.

We've simplified the NBN connection process by creating our NBN Starter Checklist. It will take you through the steps to get prepared for connecting to superfast NBN.

Once you've chosen which NBN plan is right for your place, it's simply a matter of waiting for your nbn visit and for your NBN Starter Pack to arrive with all your connection tools and info. You'll have everything you need to complete the set up yourself, or you can choose to have one of our tech-savvy professionals set everything up for you for a small fee.
