FAQs

How To Choose Your Internet Provider?

In choosing your internet provider, there are several factors that you need to consider. One of these is the features of the plans that they offer. The internet provider that you should go for should be able to provide the speed and data allocation that you need based on the number of people frequently connecting to your internet simultaneously.

Another thing that you need to consider for you to choose the right internet provider is the customer service that they offer. As much as possible, go for a provider that takes pride in their customer relations. In this way, you are guaranteed that your inquiries will be attended to and your issues will be resolved, particularly those involving your internet connection.

Is NBN Available In My Area?

To have a good idea of whether NBN is already available in your area, the best thing that you can do is to visit NBN Co’s official website. From there, you will be redirected to a page where you can simply enter your postcode or suburb and the results will reveal whether NBN is already available in your region. Otherwise, you can also simply enter your postcode or suburb in the box above and click “Compare Now”. From there, a list of NBN plans offered in your vicinity will be revealed, indicating that NBN is already available in your area.

How To Set Up Nbn Modem?

To set up your NBN and modem, the first thing that you need to do is to identify your NBN box, which is either attached to a wall or a standalone unit. From there, locate the yellow port and connect the yellow plug. On the other hand, you should also locate the red plug and connect it to the red port of the modem. Switch the NBN box on and plug the modem into the power outlet. As much as possible, place your modem in a wide-open area to garner optimal signal and WiFi strength.

What Nbn Speed Do I Need?

The NBN speed that you need generally depends on the number of people using your internet connection. In this case, the more people connecting to your internet, the faster the speed that you need. Otherwise, your internet plan may fail to foster your online activities.

 

On the other hand, you may also want to consider the data allocation that you require. For more intensive internet activities such as streaming high-definition videos or playing online games, you need more data. Fortunately, more and more plans are already offering unlimited data to suit the needs of most subscribers.
