Sign up to NBN today

Melbourne, do you want to take advantage of internet that is up to four times quicker than the fastest currently available ADSL2+?

You’ll be happy to know that the NBN (National Broadband Network) rollout is progressing across Melbourne which means that the increased speed, reliability and other benefits the network delivers are being made available to more and more homes.

Looking at the NBN map of Melbourne, you’ll see a range of areas with widespread coverage already, others where there are a smaller number of addresses with coverage currently available, and a larger range of suburbs where building has started and the network will be available soon.

As the rollout of the NBN to Melbourne progresses under the plan by NBN Co who are building the network on behalf of the Federal Government, new suburbs and towns are being added frequently. We can keep you up to date with the NBN rollout to Melbourne – just register your interest here and we’ll let you know when it is available at your address.

Areas with current NBN coverage in Melbourne

The rollout of the NBN to Melbourne so far has provided widespread coverage to a few inner suburbs including Carlton, Parkville and Brunswick East as well as small pockets of coverage in the CBD. Looking further out, Tullamarine, Gladstone Park, Mill Park, Keilor Park and South Morang also have large areas with current NBN availability.

Areas where the NBN rollout has commenced

Building or building preparation is underway in a range of other suburbs including Werribee, Yarraville, Kingsville, Tullamarine, Epping, Gladstone Park, Keysborough and Cranbourne. It takes around 12 months for the network to be completed from the time that construction begins, so the NBN will be available to homes in these areas soon.

Is the NBN available at your place?

To find out the availability of the NBN at your place, head over to our NBN Coverage page and enter your address into the coverage tool. This will check the availability of the network at your specific address. If you find that the NBN isn’t available for you to connect to yet, complete our Register Interest form, and we’ll let you know as soon as you’re eligible!

When the NBN is available at your address, we can get you connected – take a look at our NBN plans page to find the perfect plan for you.

    How many centuries will it be before the NBN is fully rolled out?
    Living in Ferntree Gully (hey, I must be rich so can afford to pay for super fast internet… who needs the NBN?) and over a kilometre away from the exchange, I am lucky if I can get 3Mbps speeds… And I have to pay more because I am off network for iiNet… and they won’t be upgrading the area to ADSL2+, because the NBN is ‘coming’.
    But how long do I need to wait? And for what? Fiver to the node? How far away will the node be? The whole NBN is a joke. How about someone from private industry builds the best network out, in less than half the time (iiNet?)? I would be happy to pay a little more for more downloads at much better speeds.

    Looks like IInet public relations are right onto your queries.

  6. MichaelD says:

    Surely NBN Co know what areas are to be rolled out beyond the next 3 months. When is the eastern suburbs of Melbourne to be connected? Specifically when is Balwyn (Canterbury exchange) going to be connected?

    It seems like never, because there doesn’t seem any plan, or it’s all top secret. It all seems so far into the future it will be out-dated and useless by the time it ever gets to us.

    I can’t get any internet at all and I think its terreble that in this day and age this is the case.
