Great Southern NBN ready

| posted on November 9, 2017

HERE is a simple guide on how to make the switch to the National Broadband Network – NBN.

1: Check availability.

Check to see if NBN is available in your area by searching your address on the NBN website, nbnco.

2: Prepare to switch.

NBN involves new technologies, and some existing devices in your home or business may not be compatible with the new service.

Contact your provider and give details the following relevant technologies to see if they are NBN compatible: your current modem and landline telephone, medical alarms, autodiallers, emergency call buttons, monitored fire alarms, home or business security monitoring systems, lift emergency phones, EFTPOS or health claim terminals, and fax and teletypewriter devices.

Switching may not be straightforward in some circumstances, such as in new developments or granny flats, so consider whether trenching or additional cabling may be necessary.

3: Choose a provider and order a plan.

NBN connection is not automatic.

Contact your preferred internet or phone provider to discuss your requirements and select the plan appropriate for you.

Consider the speed tiers available in your area (how fast your internet will be) and what speeds you can actually expect, when discussing a plan with your provider.
