Information about the service

What is the service?

Approved Systems’ nbn™ broadband service uses NBNCo infrastructure (eg. fibre to the premises, HFC, fibre to the curb or fibre to the node) to deliver broadband to your premises. This service provides typical busy period download speeds of 248 Mbps for fixed line services.

Where is it available?

This service is available anywhere where nbn has been rolled out – for more details please visit the website:

What do I need to access the service?

  • Where applicable, NBNCo will need to install equipment on the outside and inside (near a power
    point) of your premises.
  • You will also need an NBN-ready modem/router (see “equipment fees” further down).
  • FTTC customers only will also need an NBN network connection device provided free of charge by NBNCo.

Important note for FTTN and FTTC customers:

  • Your copper phone line will be taken over by the connection. This means that you need to transfer to an IP phone service (internet-based phone) or you will lose your current landline phone connection.
  • You may find that all the phone sockets within your premises are disabled.
  • We strongly recommend having a second line installed as a safety net for businesses during changeover.

What is included?

Features of this service include:

  • No excess usage
  • Static IP address
  • Priority ticket handling from our support team

Do I have to bundle anything with the service?

Bundling is not compulsory. You can opt to bundle your phone service with us if you wish to help consolidate your bills.


Please note that this service may be restricted and/or cancelled if:

  • You fail to pay your bill
  • You are abusive to our staff.
  • You breach our terms and conditions or our fair use policy.
