    The title of this page is “When your address will be NBN Ready?” and that’s what I wanted to know. So I put my address in the red “Check your address here” box and put in my address only to be told that the NBN is not available but VDSL2 is – true, I already have it.

    So HOW DO I find out WHEN my address will be NBN ready? Why doesn’t this page do what its title says??

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Graham,

      In your case, we prefer to keep you on VDSL2, as this is our own network and equipment – there is no need to change! Having said that, when the NBN is ready in your area, the page you cited will change to reflect that and you can then make a decision on what NBN service you choose, or if you decide to stay on VDSL2.

    Hey Erin, this isn’t related to whatever this article is about, but I can’t find anyway to inform iinet that my mother is dead. The only correspondence I get is from the debt collector, which is adding a lot of stress I really don’t need. How can I get iinet to believe me and send me her last invoice?

  3. Ken says:

    I entered my address and nothing happened, so don’t know if I can get it or not

  4. Brian says:

    Having checked yet again on the map, I am still told that it is planned for July to Sept of this year. However, it has been saying that for about 4-5 months now and as building has yet to begin I don’t think they are going to make it.

    Also I have been told by NBN Co that I have to wait for them to do the build before I can find out if they solved the hardware problems that prevent me from getting ADSL2 and if they haven’t to lodge a fault with iiNet.

    So as you can imagine I am getting more than a little nervous as I am still sitting on a very slow iiNet mobile internet connection (for the last 5 years)that you guys don’t even sell anymore and if anything happens to that I may have to go back to smoke signals.

    Any ideas when they may update the status and actually start building? The kangaroos in the national park next to us have had NBN for about the last year according to the map!

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Brian,

      We are reliant on NBN for information about the rollout, so we won’t know anything until they update their records.

      – Leo

  5. Janet says:

    I have to agree with Graham, i clicked on the page and thought I would find out when it will be ready for my area and it does not tell you anything!!!
    Where can I find this inforamtion?

  6. Lee says:

    The answer is “never” unfortunately. The date for completion for NBN at our address was 31st March 2017 which I was very much looking forward to. After that date came and went it changed back to “Construction of the nbn™ broadband access network has started in your area.” I currently have two ADSL 2+ connections to the house to barely cater to our needs costing more than $200 a month. I’ve resigned myself to “never” and am looking forward to increased lower price 4G quotas and even 5G before we ever see this mythical NBN.

  7. FIONA BROWN says:

    Hi I keep getting email to say check when address ready and ore order the NBN I have done both of these things Does your email mean I should pre order AGAIN or shall I just sit patiently and wait for you to contact me to instal. oh and will you send my new modem too?

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Fiona,

      I’ve you’ve lodged a pre-order with us, then that is all you need to do. We’ll contact you once your area is ready to go.

  8. L Downey says:

    Yes, I opened the site expecting to be told when my address would get NBN access…..only to be told that it wasn’t available at my address yet. Well yes I knew that but when is it going to be available? How about either setting up the site to answer the question or altering the heading to ask “Is NBN available at my address yet?”

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi L,

      We’d love to do that, however, we are reliant on NBN to ensure the dates provided are correct. As a result, we pass on the information provided to us.

      – Leo

  9. Ian Wardman says:

    When your address will be NBN Ready?
    Keep asking the question, but the only response that you provide that NBN is not live in my area.
    When will you answer the question or is this just a glorified add ,full of lies, and false advertising.

  10. Andrew says:

    I agree with the earlier comment by Graham – the email that I received and this page are both misleading as they purport to help me know WHEN the NBN will reach me, but the answer provided is a binary ready now or not. Your NBN Coverage Checker does not provide dates, but dates are what we need. Bad effort Erin, setting expectations with headlines and not delivering.

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Andrew,

      We’re sorry to hear that you feel this way.

      The problem here is that we don’t have access to exact dates of availability (these aren’t given by NBN) and are reliant on the information provided by NBN. It is simply a case of passing on what we’re given.

      – Leo

  11. Brian says:

    NBN is available to the homes that have even numbers on Arundale Crescent Wembley Downs 6019, but it is not available to homes on the opposite side of the crescent that have uneven postal numbers.

    When NBN becomes available :-
    1)Will speeds be any faster than those presently enjoyed? and 2) Will homeowners be forced to switch – have no option?

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Brian!

      To answer your questions:

      1) Yes, your service should be faster, especially if its currently below 12Mbps.
      2) This is dependent on what is coming to your area and what is currently available. For customers in our iiNet Cable and VDSL2 footprint, no switch is required. Customer’s in other areas will likely need to switch, so its best to do some homework – see what is available and compare it to any alternative services.

      – Leo

  12. Steve Sutton says:

    What a waste of space. When I follow d your instructions to find outt when my home will be NBN ready, I was simply told that it was not. I already know that. What is even more frustrating though is that the NBN rollout team came and dug up my drive and half of my garden to lay a cable which they connected to a white box on the outside of my house. They even told us that that was it we were done. But still we show as more work required even though nobody can tell me what work or when it will be done. PS This work was completed in June. It is now September.

  13. Gary says:

    Your coverage checker says I can’t get NBN, but my area has been completed and other people in my building have apparently been connected. Coverage checkers at other ISPs (including TPG) also say its available. Any ideas?

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Gary,

      Thanks for the question!

      The possible reason behind this is that we may not have the required network infrastructure available to service NBN in your area. Having said that, our Sales team can take a more in-depth look at this for you, so give them a call on 13 19 17.

      – Leo

  14. Gary says:

    My area (Eltham, 3095) is cabled and active but not my house. Obviously there are issues accessing my property. Given that I am part of the small percentage of home owners who has to wait, how can I find out when I will be able to obtain NBN?
    There must be a queue that I am in and someone must have knowledge of how long it will take before my address is cabled.
    I have phoned iiNet and NBN co and both of them have been able to confirm that my neighbours have NBN and that I don’t. Neither is able to find out how long I will be waiting.
    The NBN is very mysterious and there doesn’t appear to be anyone who can answer such a simple question.

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Gary,

      Thanks for getting in touch – we can lend a hand here.

      It sounds like that there is a infrastructure issue here? Have you lodged an application with us or a pre-order? The only real way to find out is to make contact and keep asking for updates, as expected connection dates aren’t given. Have a chat to Sales on 13 19 17 – they can take a look and ask for more information for you.

      – Leo

  15. Chris Lamb says:

    Your map says that the service is available in my area, but when I put in my address it says it isnt.
    Not helpful dude.

  16. Andrew McKechnie says:

    The title of this page (and the link from the email) suggests that if I put my details in I will be given a date when I would be able to connect to NBN. Instead I get a map that tells me that NBN is available in my area (the whole suburb is coloured purple) but the message says I can’t have NBN but I can have fast “Off Net ADSL2+. This doesn’t answer the question, I no I can get ADSL 2+ (I already have it). If the map says I can access NBN when will I be able to actually get a connection?

  17. Tom Davis says:

    All I am looking for is an approximate date for my area to be NBN compliant?

  18. Anna Lehmann says:

    Iinet used to reply to emails within hours. I have now been waiting for 2 weeks ++. The signal on my phone was low so thought it might be the sim. Two goes to get a new sim at a cost of $10. No difference. So got new phone – still no difference. There is barely a signal detectable. It is a 3G plan so what I want to know is that being turned off by stealth? I can upgrade to 4G but that is another ten bucks for a new sim when I only spent that 6 weeks ago.

  19. Graham says:

    Is there a reason why my neighbours in the street have NBN conected, but this site said my address is not yet ready?

    • Brianna Burgess says:

      You may be just outside of the NBN availability, Graham. We’d encourage touching base with our Sales (13 19 17) team and we can double check the status of your address with NBN.

      – Brianna

  20. Clare says:

    This site says my suburb is NBN ready but my address is not. Will my address be ready at some point? and when? Thanks, Clare,
    Newport, Vic

    • Brianna Burgess says:

      Definitely will be available in the future, Clare! The Coverage Checker will display any progress or projected time frame if known. We’ll be sure to keep you in the loop with NBN availability at your address also – Sing out if you have any questions.

      – Brianna

  21. Nando says:


    I have been following the NBN rollout saga for years, and was informed two years ago that I would be connected to the NBN in 2017. I now checked for my availability via your checker and find that NBN will not be available until September 2020. That’s actually a bit of a relief because I currently receive up to 89 Mbps via the existing coaxial cable infrastructure and, from what I have heard from those are connected to NBN, I would not want to lose my current cable connection for anything.

  22. Anonymous says:

    My place will be getting FTTC in Jan 2018,you don’t seem to have much info about it and will it be available on iinet.



    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Ron,

      We’ll release more information on FTTC plans in due course, so keep an eye out!
