Aussie Broadband SSBI

Helping families Connect

In order to assist schoolchildren who don't have access to broadband internet at home, the Australian government is undertaking some very innovative initiatives. They have established the School Students Broadband Program, which offers qualified families a full year of free internet.

Your family must have a child who is presently enrolled in school and reside in a region served by the nbn® network in order to qualify. Also, you cannot already have a broadband connection at home. All you have to do is reach out to the National Referral Centre, Anglicare Victoria, to check your eligibility, and they can provide a code to use at service providers like us!

With this effort, we want to make it easier for more students to connect and access the tools they need to succeed in school.

What's included in the program?

12 months free of internet at your home

12 months of nbn® 50/20 unlimited data plan (or equivalent) at your home address.

Free installation by an nbn® technician

If required, an nbn® technician will come to your home to connect you to the nbn®.
