Play it fair online this Safer Internet Day
Every day, more than 8.4 million homes and businesses across Australia rely on the nbn™ network to access broadband services via internet providers. And while technology can make our lives easier – with everything from gaming and online entertainment to working and schooling from home – it’s important to be safe online and respectful when interacting with others.
That’s why Safer Internet Day – 8 February this year – is a timely reminder to use the internet safely and to approach interactions with others positively.
nbn provides a secure and reliable wholesale broadband access network in Australia, and we’re committed to helping educate the community about how broadband can lift the digital capability of our nation and with that, the importance of safe internet use.
We’re proud to support the important work of eSafety – the world's first government agency solely committed to keeping citizens safer online – and the eSafety Commissioner, who plays an important role in helping to safeguard people at risk from online harm and to promote safer, more positive experiences online.
As individual internet users, we can also each do our bit by following simple tips that will benefit all.
