Thank you to all of you who filled in our NBN survey, we have been delighted by the response.
We thought we’d share with you some of the results. So, did you know that the old phone and internet system will be turned off? Did you know you’ll need a new modem? If not then you’re not alone.
The survey showed that 62% of home owners didn’t know the old system would be turned off. Now, while that won’t happen immediately, the Government has indicated it will happen about 18 months after the NBN has been implemented in an area. So people need to take action, they won’t automatically be migrated to the new system, they have to proactively choose a new provider.
Southern Highlanders are however keen to take action. 73% of businesses and 55% of home owners want to be able to pre-register and have their new modem set up, ready for the NBN to arrive, so they can take advantage of it as soon as possible.
If you’d like to join them, you can apply for NBN here, and they’ll get you connected as soon as possible.
