Important Information About Your New NBN Connection

The following is some important information about using our service to connect to your new internet:

  • Please ensure there is NBN connection in your area by using the NBN address checker. Most of Australia as of 2021 is fully covered by NBN, but there are still some remote and hard to access areas that are not fully covered.
  • If your Internet hasn’t been connected to your premises by the specified time, please contact your nbn Provider e.g, Optus, Belong, Telstra, My republic, Aussie Internet, TPG etc for an update about your new NBN connection.
  • Ensure that you have taken out the right internet deal for your budget and lifestyle requirements. Compare NBN installation costs and other internet plans before making a final decision.
  • In the event of an internet outage in your area, your internet provider must be informed. They need to look into this, not us.
  • You must provide us with all the correct details- street address, move-in date. Failure to do so will result in delays and issues with your new NBN connection.
  • Ensure you have taken care of any outstanding bills as failure to do so could result in your internet connection request being denied.

FAQs about NBN

The process of connecting NBN depends on a couple of factors. If your new home has an existing NBN connection, then it’s as simple as signing up for a plan and arranging a connection date. Alternatively, you can ask your internet provider if they can arrange to move your current plan to connect nbn to your new home.

Planning a new NBN connection with Move-In Connect is 100% free of charge and we’ll take the hassle out of moving.

If your new home has never been connected before, you will also need to arrange for a technician to visit your home and install the NBN. This involves placing a utility box on the outside of your home and a connection box inside your home.

If you are moving into a rental property, you will need to arrange the installation with your real estate agent or landlord.

You can read more about connecting to the NBN here.

The New Development Fee (NDF) is a $300 fee charged by NBN Co for first-time connections, including connections at a premise identified as being within the site boundary of a new development and premises in an established area where a developer has increased the number of dwellings on the same plot of land.

Your telecom provider will pass on this fee to you in your initial set-up fees for a new broadband connection.

If you are moving into a home where the previous residents have had an NBN connection, then you will not be charged the NDF. You can connect your broadband by calling Move-In Connect. Our two top providers are Optus and belong.

The type of NBN connection available in your area was determined as part of the government’s rollout. There are three common types of connections:

  • Fibre-to-the-node (FTTN). This connection uses high-speed fibre optic cables to a node in the suburb or street. Copper cablesare then used to deliver the NBN from the node to the home.
  • Fibre-to-the-curb (FTTC). This connection uses high-speed fibre optic cables to the node, and then also from the node to the curbside outside your house. Copper cables are used to connect the curb to your house.
  • Fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP). This connection uses high-speed fibre optic cables all the way to your house.

FTTP is considered the fastest option because speed is lost in the copper cables.

Other types of connections available are:

  • Fibre to the building (FTTB)
  • Hybrid fibre-Coaxial (HFC cable)
  • Fixed wireless
  • Satellite connection
It is not possible to choose if your connection is FTTN, FTTC or FTTP. The type of NBN connection available in each area was decided by the government’s NBN roll-out plan.

The location of your NBN connection box will impact the strength of your signal, so you should take care to choose an appropriate location.

The recommended position is centrally located, between one and one and a half metres off the ground and in a well-ventilated, easily accessible place where it will be protected from knocks.

If you are in a large home or a two-storey house, you might need a Wi-Fi extender to get a good signal in areas furthest from the box.

To connect your premises to the new NBN connection for the first time, you will need an NBN technician to complete the installation. If you are just switching providers, then you will be able to connect your modem yourself. You can call your NBN provider to configure your old NBN modem. Nonetheless, it needs to be an NBN ready modem.

You can read more about connecting to the NBN here.

The type of new NBN connection will impact the process of getting connected, as well as if there is existing equipment in the home. If it is a new connection, a technician may need access to your house. Your provider will advise you of this before the appointment.
For most retailers, you will be able to reschedule your appointment with 3 working days’ notice. If you need to reschedule within 3 days, you could be charged a fee.

If you are moving your broadband to a new provider and plan when you move home, you might need a new modem with high-speed capabilities. If it’s possible to use your current modem, this is a great way to save money.

You will need to check with your new NBN provider to find out if you can keep your current modem. You can check on their FAQs page or give them a call with the make and model number of your modem.

Most plans include unlimited data, however, if you are a light internet user, you might save money by choosing a capped data limit.

To estimate how much data you need, use the list of common internet activities below:

  • Watching movies and shows – approx 1GB per hour (up to 7 GB per hour for 4K)
  • Listening to music – approx 120 MB per hour
  • Downloading work files – up to 20 GB per file download
  • Browsing social media – approx 180 MB per hour
  • Voice and video calls – approx 36 MB per hour

NBN offers high speeds averaging 50Mbs. However, the speed you can access depends on several factors, including your NBN connection type, the strength of your WiFi signal and congestion in the network.

If you experience consistently slow speeds, you should contact your internet service provider.

You can connect unlimited devices to your NBN via a WiFi modem. If you need to connect with an ethernet cable, there is one active data port available.

If you experience slow speeds with multiple devices connected, your modem may not be capable of dealing with the high load, or some devices may be too far away from the modem to receive a good signal.

Our preferred providers are Optus and Belong. We have partnered with them to bring you a range of plans to suit every need, along with outstanding customer service and great rates. To ensure we do right by you we can compare NBN plans for your peace of mind.

There is a range of NBN plans available, depending on the area you live in and the provider you choose.

One of our favourite plans offers high-speed internet starting from 50/20Mbps, no lock-in contract, and 25% off a second service PLUS an optional Netflix bundle for $70 per month.

If you want to upgrade your plan, you can usually do this at any time. Simply call Move-In Connect and we can help you find the best broadband plan for you.

If you want to change providers or downgrade, you will need to look at the terms of your current plan. There might be exit fees payable if you are on a fixed-term contract.   

We advise checking with your service provider to see if these items will work with the NBN. Many of these devices that are normally powered through phone lines can be run through the NBN.

Switch your nbn can be as simple as a call to your provider. In case your existing provider is unable to help, contact Move-In Connect to find exciting NBN offers.
