NBN Info


Australia’s National Broadband Network is rolling out across the Victoria. Many kindergartens have asked us to provide an NBN compatible broadband service and we now have options for kindergartens switching to the NBN.

The infrastructure is being built by NBN Co region by region. Check the roll out progress by searching for your address here: http://www.nbnco.com.au/learn-about-the-nbn/rollout-map.html

If the search above tells you that NBN is not yet ready in your area, then there is nothing further to do at this stage. If the NBN is being rolled out to your area, you can expect to be contacted by service providers, you should also contact us for more information on the NBN broadband service we can provide at no monthly fee to kindergartens registered on the Kindergarten IT Program.

About our NBN product

Once NBN services are available in your area, the Kindergarten IT Program can provide a ‘data only’ NBN service to community kindergartens that are part of the program. This is similar to our ADSL product, whereby we provide the internet connection and you maintain the telephone/voice services. The program covers the monthly cost of the NBN data service while the kindergarten manages the phone service themselves.

Our NBN service includes:

Download speeds - Up to 25 Mbps

Upload speeds - Up to 5 Mbps

Data Allowance - 300 GB / month

Modem - Netcomm NF18ACV (Supplied by us)

Monthly cost to Kindergartens - $0

Where can I find more information?

NBNCo are building different technologies appropriate to each region and site. So some sites may have NBN fibre to the premises (FTTP/B); NBN over existing coper (FTTN), NBN via antenna towers (Fixed Wireless), hybrid fibre coaxial (HFC), etc.

You can find more information on the NBN on the NBNCo site:



Or email nbn@kindergarten.vic.gov.au

NBN technologies currently supported by the Kindergarten IT Program

NBNCo is assessing what network technology may be available, and then using what we can to deliver a fast solution for each individual area. This means different locations will have the NBN delivered different ways:


nbn Fibre to the premises (FTTP) is the scenario where NBNCo run a fibre optic line all the way to your premises.


nbn Fibre to the node (FTTN) is where NBNCo run nbn™ Fibre to a newly built cabinet and then connect with the existing copper network.


nbn Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) is used in circumstances where the existing ‘pay TV’ or cable network can be used to reach your premises.


nbn FTTC or Fibre to the Curb is the latest technology available bringing fibre optic cable all the way to the edge of the premises. The connection then travels through the existing copper lead in to the kindergarten.

Fixed Wireless

nbn™ Fixed Wireless is a form of connection where data is sent from a transmission tower and travels wirelessly to an antenna that has been fitted by an nbn™ approved installer to your roof.
