10 For everything that is happening in your community UNLEY Australia’s new broadband network nbn co are busy making sure Australia is ready for the future, with a fast, reliable phone and internet services network. Parts of the City of Unley have already seen street network upgrade works commence. Here’s what you need to know What’s the nbn network? The nbn network is Australia’s new landline phone and internet net work designed to provide you with access to fast, reliable phone and internet services. Why do we need it? With so many connected devices now in the home and workplace, the way we access and use data has changed forever. A fast broadband network will ensure Australia is ready for the next generation of connected homes and businesses. What do I need to do? In most areas, once the nbn net work is available, you’ll need to move your phone and internet services to it to make sure they continue working. Check with your service provider to find out whether your services will be affected. How can I get the nbn network? Whether you’re a home, or business user, they won’t be switched over automatically. Once the net work is set up in your area, you’ll need to contact a phone or internet provider and ask about moving to a plan that uses the nbn net work. What if I don’t make the switch? The nbn network rollout affects almost all of us, with access 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. It’s early days yet for the City of Unley.
