Eurobodalla is one step closer to connecting to the nbnTM network
The nbnTM network is Australia's new landline phone and internet network. It's designed to provide you with access to fast and reliable phone and internet services, no matter where you live.1
Homes and businesses in parts of Eurobodalla are one step closer to enjoying the nbnTM network, as planning is underway to connect more than 20, 600 premises to the nbnTM fixed line network.
Construction is due to commence in parts of Batemans Bay, including the suburbs of; Denhams Beach, Sunshine Bay, Surf Beach, Batehaven, Batemans Bay, Catalina, Long Beach, Maloneys Beach, North Batemans Bay and Surfside in March/April 2017.
Residents can expect to see nbnTM construction partner:
- Installing cable through existing underground pipes or on existing overhead power poles.
- Digging and/or drilling on public property such as under footpaths or on nature strips.
- Installing pits, similar to the telecommunications pits you may already see in your area and new nbn cabinets and equipment.
Construction of the nbnTM network will then move to Moruya, Narooma and Tuross Heads in the second half of 2017 and Mossey Point in the first half of 2018.
It usually takes 9 to 12 months from the start of construction to a premise being ready for service.
If your home or business is on the outskirts of town in parts of Eurobodalla you may now be able to connect to the nbnTM network via fixed wireless technology. You can check whether you can connect to the nbnTM network at nbn.com.au/check or by calling 1800 687 626.
The nbnTM Fixed wireless technology uses advanced technology, commonly referred to as LTE or 4G, and provides wholesale speeds of up to 50Mbps download and up to 20Mbps upload.2 It's engineered to deliver services to a fixed number of premises within each coverage area. This means that the bandwidth per household is designed to be more consistent than mobile wireless, even in peak times.
Currently, Eurobodalla has nine live Fixed wireless facilities that provide more than 3,000 homes and businesses with access to the nbnTM network.
Those who cannot access nbn's fixed line or fixed wireless technologies can connect to the network through the Sky MusterTM satellite service which is available now. Homes and businesses can order a service today through one of nine satellite internet service provider to determine the package that best suits their needs and arrange for installation and connection.
Connecting to the nbnTM network is not automatic so people should contact their phone or internet provider to discuss their needs and make the switch. Residents and businesses can find out more about how to make the transition to the network by visiting www.nbn.com.au/switch.
- Your experience, including the speeds actually achieved over the nbnTM network, depends on the technology over which services are delivered to your premises and some factors outside our control (like your equipment quality, software, broadband plans and how your service provider designs its network).
- We're designing the nbn™ network to provide these speeds to our wholesale customers, telephone and internet service providers. End user experience, including the speeds actually achieved over the nbn™ network, depends on the technology over which services are delivered to your premises and some factors outside our control like your equipment quality, software, broadband plans, signal reception and how the end user's service provider designs its network.
