Information About the Service

Your Australia Broadband subscription is a broadband internet service on the National Broadband Network (nbn™). There is a limit of one Australia Broadband service per household. A private dynamic IP address comes standard with your Australia Broadband subscription.

What do I need in order to sign up for Australia Broadband on the nbn?

To sign up for Australia Broadband on the nbn, your home must be nbn ready. When you sign up, if your home has previously been connected to the nbn network, we’ll organize with the NBN Co Ltd (NBN Co) for the existing nbn connection to be reconnected.

If it is the first time your home is connecting to the nbn network, we’ll organize with NBN Co for an NBN Co technician to install the nbn equipment if it’s not already installed. A person over the age of 18 must be present during the NBN Co appointment and if you’re renting, you’ll need to get approval from the owner for the installation.

If you are using Fibre to the Node (FTTN) or Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) connection type, you’ll need an existing telephone line connected in your home. If you don’t have a telephone line in your home, the NBN Co technician will need access to your home to install a new line. If you are using a Fibre to the Basement (FTTB) connection type, the nbn equipment will be installed in your building. If your line is not connected to the nbn equipment, an NBN Co technician will require access to the communications infrastructure in your building to get you connected. You will need to notify your building manager to ensure they have access. Once the line is connected, the NBN Co technician may need to visit your home to make sure the service is working at the socket.

Do I need an nbn compatible modem?

Yes, you’ll need an nbn compatible modem to connect the nbn.

How fast is my nbn service?

Actual speeds may vary due to many factors including type/source of content being downloaded, hardware and software configuration, the number of users simultaneously using the network and performance of interconnecting infrastructure not operated by Australia Broadband. Devices connected by WiFi may experience slower speeds than those connected by Ethernet cable.
