National broadband network - NBN

The nbn™ network is Australia’s new landline phone and internet network. It is designed to provide you with access to fast and reliable phone and internet services. The nbn™ network gives us all the opportunity to do more online. Whether working or playing, learning, or just having fun, the nbn™ network will be a part of everyday life for decades to come. And now it’s on your doorstep. 

The nbn™ network rollout affects almost all of us. Access is expected to be available to 8 million homes and businesses by 2020. Most people will need to act to stay connected, even if they just have a landline phone.

Check your address

The nbn™ network is available to residents and businesses in the majority of the Armadale local government area.

Switching to the nbn™ network for business and residents

Switching to the nbn™ network is not automatic. So when the network is available to you, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Contact your phone or internet provider
  2. Ask about switching your phone or internet to the nbn™ network
  3. Check your equipment compatibility
  4. Choose a plan that suits your needs.

For more information visit the nbn webpage or call nbn™ on 1800 687 626 9am-5pm, AEST Monday to Friday.

Protect yourself from scams

  • If someone claiming to work for nbn has contacted you trying to sell you an internet or phone service, ask for their details. Then call your retail service provider to check if they’re legitimate.
  • Do not share your bank or personal details with an unsolicited caller or anyone trying to sell you an nbn™ service. 
  • nbn™ approved technicians and workers carry enAble™ identification cards. Always request to see this card before providing physical access to your address.
  • Never give an unsolicited caller remote access to your computer. For example via the installation of programs such as Team Viewer.
  • nbn™ does not call you with automated assistance to advise you will be disconnected. We suggest you hang up the phone if this occurs. 
  • nbn™ is a ‘wholesaler’ – you will need to purchase an nbn™ powered plan through a phone or internet provider. We only accept direct payment from the public in certain circumstances. For example switching technologies at your premises.
