The NBN rollout has been completed in my suburb now what?

Residents can continue to deal directly with their current service providers who will connect directly to the large network. In order to utilize the new fibre option, it is best to get connected, installation is free, but the price of services vary amongst providers and according to your connection preferences.

What does the introduction of NBN mean for my existing system?

With the implementation of the infrastructure, it is important to assess your alarm monitoring systems to ensure that they are compatible with the new NBN setup. Failure to ensure compatibility of your system with the NBN setup will result in the inability of your alarm monitoring system to operate once construction has been completed for your suburb and rendered your old landline connection inoperable. If you are currently using a back to base alarm monitoring system that operates via your telephone line, it will no longer be operational meaning it will no longer communicate with your monitoring company once the NBN begins servicing your area.
