The National Broadband Network (NBN) is an Australia-wide project funded by the Federal Government to provide all homes and businesses with a fast, reliable connection to the internet.
Technicians are currently building the necessary infrastructure; laying cables under streets and physically connecting each house and office building to the network. When work reaches your neighbourhood you can expect the NBN to deliver information about connecting to the network in your letterbox.
Once connected you will have a choice of five speed tiers, where 1 is slowest and 5 is fastest. Plan pricing follows these tiers giving you the choice of cheap broadband, or the option to pay more for a faster connection.
When will your house be connected?
The good news is that every house will be connected sometime over the next few years. The bad news is that it is quite difficult to figure out what the current roll-out timeline looks like.
You can run an address search on the NBNco website and find out if work has started in your area, but there is no information about when it might happen in the future.
