How to connect to the NBN
Step 1: Order a service
Contact your preferred telephone company or internet service provider to order a service over the NBN.
Step 2: Installation
Your service provider will arrange an appointment for NBN Co to test your premises and, if successful, install an outdoor antenna on your roof and a connection box inside your home at the same time – both are currently free of charge for a standard installation.
Step 3: Connect to the NBN
Once installed, within 24 hours residents should be able to connect their service provider’s modem to the internal NBN Connection Box to begin experiencing the many benefits of fast broadband.
