When will the NBN be available to me?
With the NBN rollout making its way around Australia, many Australians have questions about when they will receive it and how it can benefit them. In most cases, the NBN will first need to lay fibre throughout your area and then directly to residential or business properties. It is estimated the NBN rollout will take 10 years to be completed nationwide but right now there are already thousands of households and businesses around Australia connected or eligible for connection.
Is the NBN available in my area?

Is this your first time connecting to NBN?
NBN Compatible Router - To use broadband you'll need a NBN compatible modem, which is the device that connects you to the Internet. If you're coming from an existing provider your current modem may be compatible, or NuSkope can supply a pre-configure modem.
Important information for NBN customers on Fibre using our IP Phone Service
- Power dependency of NBN services
- Services offered over the NBN network will not operate unless:
- NBN's network termination device and any customer equipment that relies on mains power (for example, gateways, modems, routers and VOIP Adaptor) have a backup power source such as battery backup.
- Without a battery backup power source, you will be unable to make and receive voice calls, including to emergency services.
- NuSkope’s service does not include a battery backup power supply for either NBN's network or any customer equipment used and the service will not operate in a power outage.
New Developments Charge

- The first connection at a premises in a newly developed area i.e. a suburb with no pre-existing telecommunications infrastructure.
- The first connection(s) at a premises in an establish area in the rare instance that a developer has increased the number of dwellings on the same plot of land e.g. demolished a single house and built a block of units.
- Once the MDF has been charged at an address, it will not be charged again for subsequent connections, provided the number of dwellings at that address has not increased.
