The deadline to switch over to the National Broadband Network (NBN) is coming up quickly for Terang and Camperdown.
NBNco will be decommissioning the copper network in both towns at the start of March 2019, giving residents and businesses in these towns only weeks to make the transition.
If properties do not make the switch beforehand, their phones and internet will stop working.
NBN Fibre to the Node being was made available in these towns in August 2017, and residents have been provided with an 18-month grace period to make the switch.
While the majority of households have switched their broadband over to the new NBN network, there are still people who haven’t and they risk being disconnected when the old copper network is decommissioned in March.
The switch to NBN is not automatic and if you want to maintain your landline and internet access you must contact a phone or internet provider ASAP.
This deadline only impacts properties which have NBN Fibre to the Node available and doesn’t impact those on other NBN technologies. If you’re unsure, please call in and we will figure it out with you.
