We’ll confirm actual speeds on Fibre to the Building (FTTB), Node (FTTN) and Curb (FTTC) services. Actual speeds may be faster or slower than your typical evening speed and will vary due to a number of factors. These speeds exceed the capabilities of some content servers and computers. Even if you buy a faster speed plan, your nbn service can never go faster than the maximum line speed available from nbn co. Read our nbn speeds explained and Key facts: nbn services brochure.

Questions about switching to the nbn

Is there a cost to switch to the nbn network?

If you already have a connection, we won't charge you anything to switch to the nbn network at your address. You may not even need a new modem - but if it turns out you do we'll send you a new one free of charge.

Will I need an appointment to switch my service over to the nbn?

This depends on the nbn technology available in your area. Some homes require nbn-supplied equipment to be installed and others can be connected without an appointment. When we arrange your connection we will let you know if you need an appointment.

How long will I be offline when I switch to the nbn?

To transfer your service, nbn co may need to use part of your existing connection. If this is required, your service will need to be taken offline temporarily while the technician completes some work. Once complete, we'll bring your service back online and send you an SMS to let you know you're connected.

What if I'm renting?

Sometimes equipment needs to be installed in the home which may need the approval of your landlord or property manager. Once you've got the all clear, let us know and we'll book an appointment with nbn co for you.
