Is NBN coming to you this year?


The NBN™ rollout is showing no signs of slowing down in 2019! This year alone, NBN Co estimates they’ll connect more than 2.5 MILLION premises across a range of six different NBN™ technologies. Of this number, more than half are planned to be connected via NBN™ HFC, one of the newer technologies added to the mix. This technology runs over hybrid fibre coaxial cable, similar to that used for cable TV services. Over the course of 2017-2018, NBN Co carried out major improvements to the NBN™ HFC connection process and now the new-and-improved NBN™ HFC is in full swing!

Here’s the full breakdown of the NBN™ planned for 2019:

  • NBN™ HFC – Over 1.35 million premises
  • NBN™ FTTC – Over 680 thousand premises
  • NBN™ FTTN – Over 310 thousand premises
  • NBN™ FTTB – Over 135 thousand premises
  • NBN™ Wireless – Over 55 thousand premises
  • NBN™ FTTP – Over 9 thousand premises


Will your home be connected to NBN™ this year?

The easiest way to check your home’s status in the NBN™ rollout is to check your address on our website. Not only will this let you know which type of NBN™ technology is planned at your address (NBN™ Fibre, NBN™ Wireless or NBN˜ Satellite) but if your address is going to be NBN™-ready soon, you can also pick out your iiNet NBN™ plan and pre-order now so we can get you connected as soon as possible.

Pre-ordering your iiNet NBN™ plan is typically possible once NBN™ is expected to be available at your address within the next three months but in some cases, you may be able to pre-order as early as six months in advance. If you’re already an iiNet customer, you’ll get an email and/or SMS from us letting you know when pre-order is available, so you don’t need to keep checking our website.

If you’re not currently with iiNet, you may want to consider switching to one of our NBN™-ready Naked or ADSL2+ plans. Once NBN™ becomes available in your area, you’ll be able to upgrade it to iiNet NBN™ without incurring any contract break fees (although all of our NBN™-ready plans are available with no lock-in contract options if that’s more to your taste).

Make NBN™ easy by pre-ordering iiNet NBN™

One of the main advantages of pre-ordering your NBN™ plan with iiNet is convenience. We understand that the NBN™ rollout can be confusing and your circumstances may change over time, so we’ve made the process easy and hassle-free. Simply place your order and leave the rest to us!

  • Upgrade to the NBN™ as soon as it’s available
  • Change your pre-order at any time
  • Pay nothing until your NBN™ order is processed
  • 24/7 tech support if you need a hand

That means that if you move out, get a housemate or change your internet habits in any other way that would affect the kind of plan you need, no worries! You can change your NBN™ plan at any time, whether you signed up for a 24-month contract or a no lock-in contract. Even after your NBN™ plan is connected, you’ll still have the ability to switch to any plan within our current range of iiNet NBN™ plans, so it’s totally flexible for your needs.

The benefit of iiNet’s awesome customer service

Another major benefit of choosing iiNet for NBN™ is our top-notch customer service team, of course! Choice, a leading consumer advocacy group, recently named us Australia’s Best NBN™ Provider for Speed and Customer Satisfaction, which is a pretty big deal. At iiNet, we’ve been connecting Aussies to great-value broadband and phone services for over 25 years and we’ve been selling NBN™ since the early days. We’re an experienced provider with a main focus on delivering awesome customer service so needless to say, you’ll be in good hands with us on the NBN™.

    2 questions pls…
    When NBN arrives will I stay with Westnet or be moved to iinet…
    Also will it be necessary to change phone provider?

      Hi John!

      There’s no need to change from Westnet at all, so you’ll stay with Westnet. There’s no need to change provider either, as Westnet will continue to keep looking after you in that respect.

    what a joke, the year 2019 and I can only get 60GB at peak times, 7am to 1am.

    please please can we get a service at least as good as New Zealand or even most of Asia.

    The good news is that by the time Mal’s rollout finishes NBN will be obsolete and we will have 5G.

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Richard,

      Thanks for your thoughts! It sounds like you’re on one of our Sky Muster NBN Satellite plans. Bear in mind that data on these plans is strictly controlled by NBN, to ensure network performance and maintain the capacity needed to run these connections. As a result, our plans are pushed as far as NBN will allow before they forcibly slow down the speeds of each service. If we hear of any plans to possibly increase data limits on these connections, you can be assured that we’ll be looking hard at them to see what we can offer!

      – Leo
