For outbuildings or granny flats that share the same address as the primary residence on a block of land, you may need to extend your existing nbn™ broadband access network service from the primary residence.
Being nbn™ ready means your property developer has applied to have your new premises connected to the nbn™ access network. This means that as soon as you move in, you can connect to the nbn™ broadband access network through your preferred phone or internet provider and enjoy fast broadband speeds.
If your new home is currently being built you should check if the property developer has applied for the nbn™ broadband access network.
For new developments, the permanent cabling required to complete the connection to the nbn™ broadband access network will need to be organised by the property owner and their registered cabler. Speak to a registered cabler or your preferred phone or internet provider about the specific requirements for your home.
Depending on the location, nbn uses a mix of technologies to connect to the nbn™ broadband access network. The installation process differs by technology, so check your address to find out if the nbn™ broadband access network is available in your area and what type of technology/equipment is required to connect your premises.
There are some cases where a property owner may be required to organise digging a trench to prepare for a connection to the nbn™ broadband access network. If you are unsure of the trenching requirements for your premises, please contact your phone or internet provider.
*nbn is a provider of wholesale speeds to phone and internet providers. Your experience, including the speeds actually achieved over the nbn™ broadband access network, is determined by your provider and the nbn™ powered plan you choose, the technology over which services are delivered to your premises, and some factors outside our control (like your equipment quality and software). nbn™ wholesale speed tiers available to your provider vary depending on the access technology in your area.
