BWR NBN / Firbre Optic Internet
All Australian households will need to switch to the NBN as it is rolled out, suburb by suburb, and the old system is switched off. The aim of the NBN is to give you access to next generation phone and internet services which are much faster, more reliable and more affordable.
How much faster
is the NBN? The NBN is a lot faster than ADSL.
For example, if you purchased a 2.0GB HD movie to download, then the difference in download time would be around:
What happens to my home phone line?
As NBN Co connects each suburb to the NBN they will also start the process of switching off the traditional phone network. You will receive plenty of notice from NBN Co about the date that the old phone system will be switched off in your area.
Before this date you will need to select your phone service. BWR NBN phone service is called ExeFone and comes bundled free with your data plan. It also gives you much cheaper call rates and a range of call packages for even greater savings.
NBN Co lays cables in
The NBN Co is laying cables, suburb by suburb, throughout Australia. The cables are optic fibre and deliver much faster internet speeds. Once NBN Co start laying cables in your area it may take 12 months until all streets are serviced and you can connect your home.
If you are in a fixed wireless area, NBN Co will erect a wireless base station to service your local area.
A utility box will be
installed your exterior wall
Before you can connect to the NBN a utility box will need to be fitted to the outside wall of your home.
NBN Co will do this for you at no cost and you don't need to be home for the installation.
If you are in a wireless area, NBN Co will also install a small wireless antenna on the roof or wall of your home.
