What is NBN™?

The National Broadband Network or NBN is a new high speed internet network being built in Australia. Replacing the existing broadband infrastructure, it aims to provide access to a faster and more reliable internet service (data and phone) wherever you live.

The NBN is gradually being rolled out across Australia, meaning not everybody is ready to connect now to the NBN. Even if NBN has reached your suburb, your home may or may not be ready as the roll out can take different amounts of time depending on what technology is required. Checking if your home or business is NBN ready is easy – just pop your address into our NBN checker.

Why do I need to know about the NBN?

It is important to know whether your home or business is ready or when it is expected to arrive, to make sure you are not affected by any service interruptions. After a certain period of time once the NBN becomes available to you, they will start the process of switching off the old phone and internet service and you may lose your existing home phone number if you have not yet switched over to the NBN.

The good news is Flip can help you prepare for this change. Let our friendly, knowledgeable team inform you when you are ready to switch and answer any questions you may have about the NBN.
