The nbn rollout is picking up speed and based on the 2017 rollout plan, over 50% of Australians will have access to the nbn by the end of 2017 with the construction due to be completed by the end of 2021.
It is vital to check nbn availability at you specific address as the connection date and type of connection can vary from location to location.
If you would like to know when the nbn is coming to your area the nbn rollout map allows you to find out the approximate availability date and the type of connection, you will get at your home.
For homes that are due to be connected to nbn in 2017 you are quoted a 3 month window, while those beyond 2017 will be given a 6 month window. In addition you can see the planned technology type (fttp, fttn, ftc, fttb, hfc or satellite) that will be used to provide internet service your home.
There are 3 types of shading used on the map. Purple, for locations where service is available, meaning that you can now order an nbn plan from a service provider. Brown, for locations where the build has commenced, meaning that work is scheduled for this area soon. Blue, for an area that is already serviced by a non nbn private high speed broadband network.
If nbn is available at your home and you haven't done anything about it, don't worry you have 18 months before the old ADSL service is switched off. If nbn is not yet available, and you still need an internet service Mobile Broadband or ADSL are good options.
Nbn prices start from around $40 per month and increase based on the nbn service provider, how much data you need, the speed of the nbn connection and other inclusions like PayTV.
