The nbn™ (National Broadband Network) was a government initiative that upgraded Australia’s national broadband infrastructure. The goal was to provide the majority of Australians with faster broadband speeds at affordable prices, with minimal costs for the project. The earliest customers were connected in 2010. The government officially declared the rollout to be complete in December 2020. However, tens of thousands of homes remain to be connected and NBNCo will continue by focusing on upgrades at least until 2023, to deliver faster speeds. Some of these include areas with Fibre to the Node (FTTN) technology, which will be upgraded to Fibre to the Premises (FTTP).
Although the nbn™ was undertaken by NBNCo, households and businesses connect to the nbn™ through their choice of retailer (internet service provider or ISP), such as Webcentral, as for any type of internet connection. In turn, the ISP purchases wholesale services from NBNCo. The nbn™ uses different connection types or technologies such as fibre, existing copper telephone wire, existing HFC cable (pay TV cabling). These vary depending on your location. Webcentral Broadband offers a range of plans to suit your needs.
It’s easy to get connected to the nbn™. Simply click through to check your address using our nbn™ availability checker and we’ll let you know if an nbn™ service is available to your premises. After that, you can choose one of our nbn™ plans and sign up online. Your internet service will be active within a flash.
We’ll also let you know the kind of speeds you can expect based on your nbn™ plan. This can vary depending on the access technology type has used to connect your premises.
The speed of your nbn™ connection will depend on the technology type in your area, your modem/router, and your plan. Webcentral currently offers the following plans with their indicated typical evening speeds.
Your speed may vary depending on your modem or router type, connection method, Wi-Fi speeds and other factors.
