NBN Co’s ‘Check Your Address’ page used to be pretty useless. But the site was recently overhauled to provide more detailed information to users. You can now find out when your residential address will be connected – and what technology is being deployed – at the click of a button. Here are the details.

After criticism over a lack of transparency, the company behind the National Broadband Network has updated its searchable rollout map. In place of an ‘available’/’not available’ message, users now receive an estimated timeframe for completion in their suburb as well as what stage it’s currently at.

Want to know when the NBN is coming to your suburb? All you need to do is type your address into the website and click to see the results.

You can check your address here.

You can also register for email updates if your street isn’t ready. Remember: the NBN rollout is compulsory for anyone who wants to keep using landline phones and internet. You can find out everything you need to know here.

Once the NBN has rolled out to your area, you’ll need to sign up with a service provider. Here are some of the best plans you can currently get in the top two speed tiers:

NBN 100 plans

NBN 50 plans

  • Tried to sign up for email updates on that website. Their website wasn’t functioning properly, so I reported it to them. The response was that they would contact me by MAIL when my area was likely to be upgraded.

    Speaks volumes about the IT competency of this organisation: can’t get a simple subscription email list running and rely on the postal service for communication.

  • Headline: “Find Out When You’re Getting The NBN With One Click”
    Me: “Cool”
    *Clicks*
    *Enters address*
    *Clicks*
    Website: “Where you stand within the nbn™ rollout: Planned”.

    Cool, good to know they still plan to one day cover eastern Melbourne suburbs.

    • This was a completely useless article. All the addresses I tried (in Adelaide) just return:

      “nbn is committed to completing the rollout by 2020”

      Can you update the article with an example suburb that actually does have definite plans or is being rolled out?

      • Worked for me. Tried my address and said its planned for July-December 2017, tried a friends address says it’s planned for Jan-March 2017. No problems at all.

  • Thought I would check my address – despite knowing my area was activated this week.

    Last week – Build Commenced.
    Today – Planned

    Go figure.

  • Instead of 3 years (a year or 2 ago), I can now look forward to waiting another 4 years.
    Happy ending is in sight.

  • Got the feeling they have moved all areas to “planned” as they didnt even have any information for my suburb up until recent.

    Getting tired of these nbn adverts, kind of like rubbing salt into the wound for those that dont have it

  • I was kinda expecting to go to a “magic 8 ball” site that would always show up “NEVER”.

    Still kinda confused why there is a “Check Home” or Check Business” … and address is an address… am i going to get it faster if its a business??

  • You gotta love how they are still calling their MTM “the NBN”, even though most of it will be inferior to the NBN.
    Then to add insult to injury, they also refuse to disclose what system people will get. It’s almost as if they were ashamed of letting it be shown.

  • I think the planning is still in the planning stage. That is they are trying to decide how & when to do the planning.

  • Oh yay, end of 2019. (I don’t believe it)
    Under Labor it was in planning 4 years ago and I would be on fibre already.

    WTG Malcolm.
