Switching to the nbn™
Information on switching over from your existing internet service technology type to an nbn™ based service.
- If you currently have a copper-based service such as a home phone or ADSL, you will need to switch to the nbn™ before the copper services are switched off.
- ADSL will no longer be available once nbn™ is available in your area.
- You will not need to switch to the nbn™ if you have a Superloop Fixed Wireless service.
Switching to the nbn™, Yes or No?
For most people, the short answer is yes. Eventually, the existing copper telephone network, which provides basic telephone and ADSL internet services, is going to be discontinued (this period of time is generally 18 months after an area becomes ready for nbn™).
However, this only applies if you are actively using the copper line for either telephone or ADSL internet or both. If you currently have a Superloop Fixed Wireless connection, you will not need to switch over to the nbn™ network as the Superloop Fixed Wireless network is run, owned, and maintained by us, completely independent of the copper network, and will be unaffected by the copper telephone network shut-off.
Can you still get ADSL?
Once nbn™ is ready for service (RFS) in an area, ADSL undergoes a 'Stop-Sell' meaning that ADSL will no longer be available through any internet service provider.
