2016/06—nbn Broadband available in the Jervis Bay Territory
The nbn broadband service is available in the Jervis Bay Territory via satellite or fixed wireless service providers. The majority of the Jervis Bay Territory is covered by the satellite service.
You can check your address at http://www.nbnco.com.au/connect-home-or-business/information-for-home/satellite.html or telephone 1800 687 626 (free call) to find out if the satellite or the fixed wireless service is available at your address.
If you wish to connect to the nbn broadband, you will need to contact your preferred phone or internet service provider to choose a plan that suits your needs. The eight retailers listed overleaf provide internet plans for the nbn Sky Muster satellite service.
There is a larger group of providers for the fixed wireless service.
In nbn fixed wireless and satellite areas, such as the Jervis Bay Territory, people's existing copper line will not be disconnected or otherwise altered. Your landline phone services continue to operate over the existing telecommunications networks.
However, satellite and fixed wireless customers may also be eligible to have their landline phone service operating over VOIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) telephony.
If you choose to access nbn broadband, when speaking to your phone or internet provider about switching to the nbn check whether VOIP phone services will be a suitable option for you.
