New Development Fee Information
What is a new development fee and does it apply to me?
From 1 April 2016, nbn™Co may charge a $300 new development fee for the cost of deploying network infrastructure to new premises or dwellings. This fee may be applied to each premises requiring a nbn™ connection. This includes, but is not limited to, new dwellings, lots under reconstruction, lots without any existing infrastructure, and buildings requiring a new mailing address.
We will inform you upon signup if this fee may apply.
Once the NDF has been charged at an address, it will not be charged again for subsequent connections, provided the number of dwellings at that address has not increased.
This was paid to a previous ISP, does it need to be paid twice?
No, but nbn™ will require proof that the fee has been paid. Once nbn™ decide that a premises needs to pay the fee, we must provide them with the $300 or a receipt showing payment was made to a previous provider. If no receipt exists, then you may be obligated to pay the fee to the nbn™ again.
