NBN – what you can and might want to do to prepare

The National Broadband Network, or NBN, will bring high-speed broadband right to your home. It has the potential to change the way you live and work in every room of your house or apartment. Making the most of all that technology is your next step, but how much or how little you do is up to you. The First Step is to contact your Telephone or Internet Service Provider to learn more about the services they offer with the NBN so that you can plan what you want to do. 

As Telstra Dealers, we at AQUATel can organise good quality and reliable NBN services through Telstra in the areas ready for NBN. contact us to learn what we can offer.

Having done that you will still have a number of choices:

Do a little
Your Service Provider is responsible for making sure your home is connected to the NBN, but if you’re happy with your phone, computer and TV just the way they are then you can simply do nothing about your new NBN connection

Do more
If you want a bit more technology at home like connecting the latest ‘smart televisions’ to the web or having more than one internet outlet then you can do a bit more. In preparation to switch to the NBN you may want to install some home dedicated networking technologies to devices that required high bandwidth like Smart TVs so you can get higher reliability. Note: any cabling work must be done by a registered telecommunications cabler

Do a lot
If you want the internet to work reliably in every room of your house, or you want to link appliances or systems easily, then you can do a lot more to get your home ready.

Have Category 6 cabling to every living area of your home from one central location – this is called “Smart Wiring” or “Structured Cabling”
You get high speed connectivity to every living area that supports power over Ethernet and optimised location for your wireless access point.
Note: any cabling work must be done by a registered telecommunications cabler.

Making sure technology works together right round your house or apartment is called Home Networking and is most reliably done over wires. Other technologies like wireless can also be used for Home Networking, but only wires & cables guarantee optimum performance.
