Of this number, more than half are planned to be connected via NBN™ HFC, one of the newer technologies added to the mix. this technology runs over hybrid fibre coaxial cable, similar to that used for cable TV services. Over the course of 2017-2018, NBN Co carried out major improvements to the NBN™ HFC connection process and now the new-and-improved NBN™ HFC is in full swing!

 

 

Here’s the full breakdown of the NBN™ planned for 2019:

  • NBN™ HFC – Over 1.35 million premises
  • NBN™ FTTC – Over 680 thousand premises
  • NBN™ FTTN – Over 310 thousand premises

Will your home be connected to NBN™ this year?

The easiest way to check your home’s status in the NBN™ rollout is to check your address on our website. Not only will this let you know which type of NBN™ technology is planned at your address but if your address is going to be NBN™-ready soon, you can also pick out your Internode NBN™ plan and pre-order now so we can get you connected as soon as possible.

Pre-ordering your Internode NBN™ plan is typically possible once NBN™ is expected to be available at your address within the next three months but in some cases, you may be able to pre-order as early as six months in advance. If you’re already an Internode customer, you’ll get an email and/or SMS from us letting you know when pre-order is available, so you don’t need to keep checking our website.

If you’re not currently with Internode, you may want to consider switching to one of our NBN™-ready Easy Naked or Easy Broadband ADSL2+ plans. Once NBN™ becomes available in your area, you’ll be able to upgrade to Internode NBN™ without incurring any contract break fees (although all of our NBN™-ready plans are available with no lock-in contract options if that’s more to your taste).

Make NBN™ easy by pre-ordering Internode NBN™

One of the main advantages of pre-ordering your NBN™ plan with Internode is convenience. We understand that the NBN™ rollout can be confusing and your circumstances may change over time, so we’ve made the process easy and hassle-free.

  • Upgrade to the NBN™ as soon as it’s available
  • Change your pre-order at any time
  • Pay nothing until your NBN™ order is processed
  • Award-winning, local tech support ready to help

That means that if you move out, get a housemate or change your internet habits in any other way that would affect the kind of plan you need, no worries! You can change your NBN™ plan at any time, whether you signed up for a 24-month contract or a no lock-in contract. Even after your NBN™ plan is connected, you’ll still have the ability to switch to any plan within our current range of Internode NBN™ plans, so it’s totally flexible for your needs.
