Local update

Residents and business owners in Kingston SE and Pinks Beach can connect to the nbn™ network now via Fixed Line (Fibre to the Node) technology, and start enjoying all the benefits of fast and reliable internet before many other areas of Australia.

All residents and business owners outside of these towns can now access to the nbn™ network via Sky Muster™ satellite, which is live across the remainder of Kingston District Council, offering fast and reliable internet to regional, rural and remote Australia.

There are currently 10 satellite service providers available, all with retail plans at different price points and data allowances, so you can choose a plan that best suits your needs. View a list of current providers.

Switching to the nbn™ network

Switching to the nbn™ network isn’t automatic. To switch to the nbn™:

  1. Contact a phone or internet provider
  2. Ask about switching your phone or internet to the nbn™ network
  3. Check your equipment compatibility
  4. Choose a plan that suits your needs

In Kingston SE and Pinks Beach, residents and business owners will need to move their phone and internet services to the network to make sure they continue working.  Check with your service provider to find out whether your services will be affected.

Five things you need to know, even if you only have a landline phone:

  1. What’s the nbn ™ network?
    The nbn™ network is Australia’s exciting new landline phone and internet network designed to provide you with access to fast, reliable phone and internet services, wherever you live.
  2. 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.
  3. What do I need to do?
    In most areas, once the nbn™ network 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.
  4. How can I get the nbn™ network?
    As a wholesaler, nbn doesn’t sell directly to the public. That means once it’s in your area, you’ll need to talk to a phone or internet provider about moving your services.  Whether you’re a home, or business user, they won’t be switched over automatically. To make the switch, call a phone or internet provider and ask about moving to a plan that uses the nbn™ network.
  5. 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.
