nbn™ stands for National Broadband Network. It is the service in which the majority of Australians use to access the internet from their homes and businesses.
You can visit www.nbnco.com.au to learn more about nbn™ and visit our plans page to get connected today....read more
The National Broadband Network (nbn™) is made up of a series of fibre optic cables. The cables run out from a Point of Exchange (or POI) in your local area. The cables will either run all the way to your home (FFTP), to the pit outside your home (FTTB) or to a ‘NODE’ somewhere near your home (FTTN).
In some cases an nbn™ connection can also be sent via Satellite or Fixed Wireless.
Find out more about the network on the NBN Co website....read more
The nbn™ rollout is largely complete, so most addresses in Australia will have the ability to connect to the nbn™ network.
If you have not yet had an nbn™ connection activated at your address, this will need to be facilitated by NBN Co technicians before you can get connected to More nbn™.
When you enter your address in our service qualification tool on our nbn™ sign up page, you will see if an existing connection is available at your address. If you’re not yet connected, once you sign up for a More nbn™ plan an order will be placed with NBN Co to perform an activation at your address. The time it takes to get nbn™ installed at your address will depend on your property the type of connection available.

The nbnTM activation appointment will vary based on how nbnTM is delivered to your home or business. If you are unsure of this, it will be advised in the emails from More that are sent after an appointment date has been set for your activation.
FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) involves fibre being connected right into your property or business. If this is the first time you are having nbnTM connected to the property, an NBN Co technician will attend site to complete the activation. They will install a box on the outside of the property, then usually drill through the wall and install equipment inside the property.
It’s a good idea to consider where you want to install the equipment inside the property. You will plug the modem / router and any phone services into this equipment. NBN Co are supposed to provide up to 30 metres of fibre in ...read more
When you sign up for a More nbn™ plan, you will enter your address to see what sort of connection is available for your home. This will depend on the nbnTM delivery in your neighbourhood, and may impact what More plans are available to you. Typical nbnTM delivery types include Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), Fibre to the Node/Basement (FTTN/B), Fixed Wireless, Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) and Fibre to the Curb (FTTC).
The NBN250 plan is only available for FTTp and some HFC connections. When you enter your address during sign up, you will only be able to select nbnTM plans that are available at your home.
We will keep you up to date regularly on the progress of your order via email or sms.
It is important that you look out for these notifications as they will include important information on your activation appointment, if you require NBN Co to visit your property to get connected. Depending on the connection process for your property, you may be required to be in attendance, and missing an appointment will cause delays with your order....read more
For some nbn™ connections there is no need to keep an active telephone service. The nbn™ network uses a number of different delivery methods, and the following list details the nbn™ technology types that use the copper line:
1. FTTN - Fibre to the Node. This is where fibre optics is delivered to your street and then high speed internet is transferred to a copper cable that runs into your home. The node is a box that is constructed in the street that transfer the internet from fibre optics to copper. If you have an existing copper telephone line connected to your property, nbn™ will use this for nbn™. Note that there is no need to continue paying line rental, you can opt to cancel the phone service after your nbn™ service has been connected.
3. FTTB - Fibre to the building. This is where fibre optics is delivered to your building and then copper is used to distribute high speed ...read more
Depending on how nbn™ is delivered to your property and your property's nbn™ readiness, this will vary from just 1 day to around 3 weeks. You can check your address on our website and in most cases we'll be able to give you an indicative timeframe.
If your property has already been connected to the nbn™ previous we should be able to get you connected in 1-3 days.
If your property has not been connected to nbn™ in the past we will likely need an nbn™ technician to come and activate your service. General time frames for the next available nbn™ activation appointment is usually between 1 and 3 weeks. We'll be able to give you a better idea after you place your order. This is purely dependent on the availability of NBN Co's technicians to complete your activation and we always request earliest available appointment (unless you request otherwise).

The Australian government enforce at New Development Charge to greenfield developments that need to be connected to the nbnTM network.
Part of this charge is the End User Contribution Charge of $300 (inc. GST). Internet Service Providers such as More pass this charge to the end user when they want to connect to the nbn™.
Please note that this charge is only applicable if your property is a new development and has never been connected to the nbn™ before.
You can read more about this policy here.
The More team will alert you if the New Development Charge applies when you complete your address check as part of the signing up process....read more
As soon as your nbn™ service is activated billing does commence. We are keen for you to get online with your new nbn™ plan as soon as possible so you can start enjoying the great benefits.
If we have sent you a new nbn™ modem/router, please use the PDF user guide below for a step by step guide on how to plug this in and get online. There are different instructions based on how nbn™ is delivered to your property.
If you are unsure how nbn™ is delivered to your property please see the activation emails that we have sent during the installation process.
Please use the relevant guide to your nbn™ technology type. There is a separate guide for FTTP/HFC/Wireless NBN, FTTN/B NBN and FTTC NBN. If you are unsure what technology type your property has please refer to emails sent during the order confirmation process.
Your nbnTM can run slowly for a number of reasons. When initially moving to an nbnTM connection, users often experience dramatically increased bandwidth compared to older ADSL services.
It is important to understand how your devices use the internet to ensure a good experience with the additional bandwidth. Things like the hardware and software that you use may affect the speed that you experience.
The technology used by NBN Co to deliver the service to your home or business may also affect your speeds.
It’s important to understand how many devices are using your nbn™ service.
It is always important to know how many users are on your network. Remember this can be via cabled ethernet connections to your modem, as well as via wifi. The more devices you have connected, the more your bandwidth is shared.
When you sign up to a More nbnTM plan, you will create an account with a username and password. You can use these credentials to login to our customer portal to access information regarding your account.
In the future, you will be able to access this information directly from the CommBank app once the More services have been integrated....read more
In some cases, existing services are cancelled automatically when your service is transferred, and in others you will need to contact your existing provider to cancel your service.
For FTTP and Fixed Wireless connections, we will activate the next available port on the nbn™ equipment installed inside your property. This means after you are successfully connected with More you will need to advise your previous provider that you wish to cancel their service.
For HFC, FTTN, FTTB or FTTC connections we will order an nbn™ transfer. This means that your original service will stop working automatically when your More service becomes active. You may want to check with your previous provider that they have stopped billing you - but this should occur automatically.
We recommend that once your More service has been activated, you contact your existing provider to ensure that they have cancelled your service and that you ...read more

Each residential nbn™ plan sits on one of the seven main nbn™ speed tiers, which have different maximum download and upload speeds measured in Megabits per second (Mbps). But what do these speed tiers actually mean, and what impact can it have on the quality of the Wifi connection in your home? Let us break it down for you.
FIRST THINGS FIRST - HOW DOES THE nbn™ REACH MY HOME?
There are a number of different ways that the nbn™ can reach your home, and this can impact the type of internet connection you receive.
The different types of nbn™ delivery include:
1. Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) - Where fibre optics cabling is installed directly inside your property. This can deliver fast internet services with up to 1gbit/s speeds.
2. Fibre to the Node / Basement (FTTN/B) - Where both fibre optic cables and the e ...read more

If you are going overseas or do not require your nbn™ service for a long period of time, it may be beneficial to put your nbn™ Plan on hold.
We can assist with this. However, to prevent charges coming through from nbn™ we would need to cancel your service, and then re-activate it when you are ready to start using your service again. This works in the same way as putting the service on hold and nbn™ charges would cease to come through. We would not recommend doing this if the period of time is less than a month as your service will still be charged up to the end of the month that you wish to cancel it.
When we re-activate your service we would need to assist in re configuring your modem as you will receive a new username when the service is re-activated. This is a quick task and our dedicated technical support team can easily assist you with this.

In 2014 the Australian Government made the decision to use a mixed technology approach to the nbn™ rollout. This means that certain properties will use parts of the old legacy copper telephone network to complete the NBN connection to your property. This legacy copper network is unfortunately prone to issues and we encounter some users using FTTN/FTTB and FTTC technologies experiencing connection dropouts due to this.
It is important to troubleshoot your FTTN/FTTB/FTTC connection prior to us logging a fault to NBN Co as in certain cases it is local internal copper wiring that can be causing the dropout issues.
In order to properly troubleshoot you should consider the following scenarios:
1. Only a single device is dropping out and other devices are not affected.
In this case it is likely an issue with a particular device. We recommend checking and replaci ...read more
There are a number of things that you can try to help improve your Wifi coverage in your property.
Wifi is now critical in a household where numerous devices rely on good quality wifi to operate.
1. Location of your Wifi router
This is likely the most important part of ensuring you maximise the Wifi coverage inside your property. Ensure that the Wifi router is located in a central position within your house, this will give the greatest all round coverage. When you connect to one of our nbn™ plans for the first time, you may have to connect to a different socket or in a different room in the house. If required you may need to invest in home wiring to relocate the router to a more central position. For nbn™ connections using HFC technology, often the nbn™ box can be installed at the front or back of the house - in these cases we recommend investing in cabling to get your ...read more
There are a number of reasons why an nbn™ service may be running slower than expected. It may be down to hardware and software configured on your home network or due to nbn™ infrastructure, the nbn™ technology or ongoing development work underway to complete construction in your area. There could be a fault on the network that needs to be reported to nbn™ for resolution. Please read to the end of this article before calling our team for further assistance.
One of the most common reasons for slow nbn™ is Wifi performance. Often if your nbn™ Wifi modem is a long way from where you are connecting to it - this can cause a slow nbn™ experience. We always recommend trying to connect your device with an ethernet cable to see if this improves your speed. In some properties you may want to try relocating the nbn™ modem to a more central position. You may also be ...read more
You may experience some down time when switching between your current provider and More.
Once your current service is disconnected and your service with More is activated, you will then need to set up your modem.
If you’re setting up the Google Nest Wifi, this is quite a simple process that should take around 15 minutes. If you’ve chosen to BYO modem, you will need to configure your existing device with the help of our technical support team. This may take a little longer, depending on what device you’re using.

If you are looking to get a new line installed at your business premises, there are four available options depending on the site infrastructure:
1. In-place telephone line connection: A working telephone socket exists from a previous connection and a Telstra technician is not required to visit the premises. To help us identify the line that you want to reactivate, it would be helpful if you gave us the previous number that was associated with the line. If you don't know it, it can often be found out by plugging a handset into the line and dialling 127 22 123
2. In-place telephone line connection with technician visit: A previous telephone service existed at your business premises and a Telstra technician is required to visit your site to reconnect existing suitable cabling at the Main Distribution Frame (MDF) or first socket where no Main Distribution Frame exists.
