About our NBN service

If you’re a member of the Kindergarten IT Program, when the NBN is available in your area we can provide a ‘data only’ NBN service to your community kindergarten. This is similar to our ADSL service, where we provide the internet connection and you maintain the telephone/voice services. The program covers the monthly cost of the NBN data service. Phone services are not included, as they are managed by each individual kindergarten.

What’s included in our NBN service:

Download speeds: Up to 25 Mbps

Upload speeds: Up to 5 Mbps

Data allowance: 300 GB per month

Modem: Netcomm NF18ACV (supplied by us)

Monthly cost to your kindergarten: $0
