Unsure about the availability of broadband in your area?
The Australian Broadband Guarantee provides all Australian residential and small business premises with access to broadband services that reasonably compare to broadband services available in metropolitan areas.
The program offers financial assistance in the form of incentive payments to registered internet service providers to supply metro-comparable broadband services to residential and small business premises where such services would not otherwise be available.
The choice of broadband service at your premises will largely depend on which broadband providers are operating in your area and what technology they are using.
The Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy (DBCDE) has developed a Broadband Service Locator tool, which will enable consumers and SME’s to check the availability of services and providers in their area. DBCDE also has a toll free telephone number to assist consumers in registering for The Australian Broadband Guarantee. The number to call is 1800 883 488 weekdays between 8.30 am and 5.00 pm.
