We’ve made it past the halfway mark, with nearly 12 million Aussies getting nbn™-ready. And we’ve all heard about the largest infrastructure project our country’s ever seen… right?
Despite some confusion in the market, according to new research by our friends at finder.com.au, 44% of Australians (that’s over 8 million people) plan on connecting within a month from when their premise is nbn ready. 5.2 million eager beavers will get connected within the week!
“With the speeding up of the rollout and the increase in nbn education, it’s no surprise some Aussies are busting to get connected to the new network,” says Finder’s tech and telco guru, Alex Kidman.
We'll get you up to speed on the nbn
What’s less impressive is that 18% of Aussies still don’t know or understand anything about the nbn. So it’s even more important for internet providers keep on educating Aussies everywhere.
As one of the guys bringing the popular broadband network from the street into your home, we want to do everything we can here at amaysim to manage your expectations right from the get-go and provide you with the best possible service.
There’s no fuzz, hidden nasties or confusing fine print – all our nbn plans come with unlimited data, no lock-in contracts and no standard activation fees. We can even sort you out with a nbn-ready modem.
And if you’re struggling to activate your gateway to the world wide web, our customer service team is on hand and more than happy to guide you through the matrix.
Flexibility is king
Especially with something new and confusing like the nbn, it’s even more important to test and try what works best for you. So don’t lock yourself into a contract with a product you aren’t familiar with – you might end up spending more time buffering than watching the latest of your favourite show on Netflix.
Our hot tip? Stay flexible when it comes to choosing your home internet provider, your data allowance and your nbn speed. You might find that you need to up- or downgrade after your first months, and having to pay extra to switch plans is definitely not something you’ll want to explain to the missus or your housemates.
If the nbn hasn't arrived in your neighbourhood yet you can drop your details here - we'll be sure to keep you up to date with all nbn happenings.
