All You Need To Know About NBN

NBN is being rolled out across the entire country and it’s expected to connect over 8 million homes and businesses by 2020. But what is the it, why do you need it and what do you need to know? Read on for answers to all your questions.

What Is NBN?

The National Broadband Network or NBN is an Australia-wide government-backed project that intends to upgrade all existing telecommunications infrastructure in Australia with aims to connect all consumers to a unified, reliable and fast internet network. The previous copper wiring was not able to keep up with the 21st century’s fast-paced technological advances, so by upgrading all of Australia’s infrastructure everyone benefits of the multiple opportunities this presents.

When Should I Connect To The NBN?

The project is still a work in progress, but there are many homes in Australia that have already been connected and eventually, everyone will be on NBN. Essentially, it’s a nation-wide network that provides the infrastructure so that local internet service providers can distribute it to their customers. The transition to the network does not happen automatically so once the proper technology is available in your area, you will need to contact a service provider to connect. To find out when NBN will be available in your area, simply give us a call or ask us on LiveChat.

What Happens To My Home Phone?

Your home phone connects differently depending on the type of NBN technology you have and there may be a chance you can keep your existing phone line and number. But it’s always easier to use the same service provider for both home phone and internet so you just have to manage that one account.
At Click Broadband, we offer several affordable Home Phone Packages and you may choose to keep your existing phone number. If having a home phone is a hassle, you may also consider our unique Landline Connect service.
Regardless of which service provider you decide to join, it’s important that you ask for your phone number to be ported before you connect, otherwise you might lose the number and be issued a new one.
