National Broadband Network in Victor Harbor

What is the nbn?

The nbn™ network is Australia’s new landline phone and internet network, designed to provide you with access to fast and reliable phone and internet services no matter where you live. 

It will give us all the opportunity to do more.  Whether working or playing, learning, or just having fun, the nbn™ network will be a part of everyday life for decades to come.

The nbn™ network is rolling out in the City of Victor Harbor Council area.  It’s now available to residents and businesses in:

  • Victor Harbor
  • Encounter Bay
  • McCracken
  • Hayborough
  • parts of Waitpinga
  • and is coming soon to the rural areas of Inman Valley and Hindmarsh Valley.

The nbn™ network can open up many opportunities for homes and businesses:

  • Experience fast downloads, with multiple people and devices operating in the home or business at the same time^
  • Smooth video conferencing takes the frustration out of face to face contact with loved ones or work colleagues
  • Kids can unlock their full potential by having fast access to online educational tools
  • Access to a fast connection can help businesses and employees enhance productivity^

nbn™ will be mailing residents and businesses when you are able to switch to the nbn™ network, with information about what to do next. You can also find out when the nbn™ network is available by checking the address tool below, by visiting nbn.com.au or by calling 1800 687 626.

^ Your experience including the speeds actually achieved over the nbn™ network depends on the technology over which services are delivered to your premises and some factors outside nbn’s control like your equipment quality, software broadband plans and how your service provider designs its network.


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.
