NBN Co and the NBN


Established in 2009, NBN Co is an Australian Government company created to design, build and operate Australia's new broadband networks.


The NBN is a telecommunications network that aims to give you fast, reliable phone and internet services.

It is made up of broadband networks using different technologies to connect homes and businesses. These are based on factors such as where you live and the cheapest way to give you super-fast internet access.

NBN Co is rolling out fibre-optic, fixed wireless and satellite infrastructure that will replace most existing networks. Parts of existing networks will also be used. More information can be found on these technologies by clicking here.

The NBN will also provide most landline voice telephone services. If the NBN is coming to your area, you will likely need to change your voice and internet service to the NBN.

Moving to the NBN

Contact your existing (or new) landline phone and internet service provider to switch your services to the NBN. Service providers will liaise with NBN Co and manage your NBN connection.
