NBN for home

The National Broadband Network - affordable, high-speed internet access for Australia.

The National Broadband Network (NBN) is an upgrade to our existing telecommunications network. It provides the infrastructure for affordable, high-speed internet and phone access for all Australia. 

  • Fast speeds for everyone - whether it's enjoying great quality SkypeTM calls, downloading large files, or simply surfing the web, the whole family can enjoy high-speed internet.
  • Work from home with ease - quickly send and receive large files, access your work server and take part in high-quality video calls - the speeds available over the NBN can make it easy to work from home2.
  • Take learning outside the classroom - whether you're at school or taking up a new interest, you can easily access exciting, interactive content. Stream lectures, learn a language via video tutorial or even take a virtual tour of a museum.
  • Entertainment on demand - download a movie in minutes or a music album in seconds, and easily stream your favourite TV shows and movies.

1 Your experience including the speeds actually achieved over the NBN depends on some factors outside our control like your equipment quality, software, broadband plans and how your service provider designs its network.

2 Access to your work network will depend on factors outside our control like your organisations' IT policy and infrastructure.
