NBN Co will let you know your region’s ‘ready for service’ date by direct mail.
Once NBN has announced your area is ready for service, you will generally have 18 months to move your landline phone and internet services to the new NBN network.
Some service providers might have shorter timeframes.
Is it compulsory to have NBN?
Despite this, connecting to the NBN is compulsory, with existing telephone and internet connections switched off to make way for the rollout. For those who missed the memo, the NBN is not an “opt in” technology.30 Oct 2017
What is my NBN cut off date?
Your existing phone services will be cut off 18 months after the NBN is first available at your address. It is a rolling disconnection, so this date is different for everyone.
Is there an alternative to the NBN?
And as long as you can get a decent mobile signal at your home, home wireless is a great NBN alternative. Many home wireless connections are limited in terms of the speeds they can offer. But the major exception to this is Optus wireless broadband.
Do I have to pay for NBN installation?
The National Broadband Network will be installed at your home free of charge. However, you will have to pay for an NBN plan to cover your monthly usage. The price of NBN plans is always changing, but you can expect to pay somewhere between $60 and $100 per month for your connection.
