I’m sure you have heard of the nbn™ network, but what exactly is it?
The nbn™ network is an upgrade to Australia’s existing phone and internet infrastructure. It will affect the vast majority of people across Australia as it impacts our landline phone and internet services.
NBN is the team behind the nbn™ network rollout. Their responsibility is to provide wholesale services to phone companies and internet service providers who offer nbn™ plans for homes and businesses.
As a wholesaler, NBN does not sell directly to the public. That means, to move your services over to the nbn™ network (both home and business services), you will need to contact a provider and choose a new plan that suits your needs directly with them. The team at Our Local Electrician in Melbourne is experts in NBN connection and wiring needs. We are able to install NBN services and set you up in your home or business.
The nbn™ network is being rolled out progressively across the country with an aim to connect eight million homes and businesses by 2020. Upgrading to NBN is compulsory!? Once you receive a notification that the new NBN network in your area is ready, you are only given 18 months to make the switch and move over to NBN. If this isn’t done, your existing network will be turned off.
The aim is to provide access to all the benefits of fast and reliable internet services so that Australians have the same basic service, no matter where they live.
Australia’s existing copper network was not designed for the demands of the 21st century with its fast-changing digital landscape and a subsequent increase in demand for fast and reliable connectivity.
The nbn™ network uses a range of broadband technologies including new fiber-optic cable, existing copper lines, fixed wireless, and satellite to deliver access to fast and reliable internet to all Australian homes and businesses.
