When will I get my NBN?


On the face of it, there isn't much rhyme or reason to the NBN rollout. Your suburb might already have NBN, but the suburb next door could be waiting another two years. There's probably logic behind who gets NBN and when, but there's no hard rules for when you'll be connected. 

The best way to find out when you're due to get on our new internet super highway is by checking the NBN rollout map. It however worth noting that these timelines aren't fixed, and can change.
