Did you know EVERY Australian residence will be able to access some form of nbn™ by the end of 2020 ?
- Every Australian residence will be able to access some form of nbn™ – fixed, fixed wireless or satellite. nbn™ are a wholesaler for the service, they sell to providers who then sell to the public.
At BIRRR headquarters we spend a lot of time researching the facts for our many members. We have noticed lately some confusion over the release of the new nbn Sky Muster Satellite service. The single most important item to remember is to research plans and providers, don’t stick with an old plan just because you have been with that provider for years. Sky Muster Providers are listed here.
To help choose an nbn provider check out the BIRRR Tip Sheet.
To compare Sky Muster providers – see our Sky Muster Plan Comparison.
How do you find out what type of nbn™ you will be getting at your address ?
STEP 1. Check your address on the NBN Rollout Map. The map should state what nbn technology your address is mapped for. If the pin on the map is not your actual house, go to Step 2. If you are close to purple shading or have line of sight to a nbn Fixed Wireless tower (and not in purple shading), go to Step 2.
If your address looks correct, click on the arrow to find out if your residence is ready for service and which providers you can chose from. When you contact a provider you will be given an install date for an nbn technician to come and install your equipment.
If your address does not map. Go to Step 2
STEP 2. If you find your address does not display or is incorrect on the nbn Check your Address site you can contact nbn directly via email – firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 1800 687 626 and ask for your address to be fixed up so that you can order a service.
If you have any difficulties or think you are eligible for a different nbn technology, BIRRR can assist via our desk check process.
Please note, while all care has been taken in compiling BIRRR documents, we recommend that you check with nbn™ or your provider regarding your connection.
