Re: How long does it take for nbn to be put on if it’s already connected in your area

Generally speaking, about 3 weeks, but it does depend on the availability of NBN Co technicians and whether or not there is extra infrastructure works required to connect your property (eg you are in an HFC area but only currently have an ADSL connection - they would need to arrange a crew to connect the HFC cable to your house).
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Hey Sam2000,

@Jupiter is on the money as usual, ten business days is what we used to quote for a new DSL connection, but that was back when it was our network infrastructure and technicians performing the work.

 

If you do a search for your address at http://tel.st/gn7qe, you'll be able to see what "flavour" of nbn is rolled out in your area. If you're on FTTN, I doubt it will be the full three weeks advised above, if it's one of the other technologies and internal works are needed, it will be what's indicated.

 

If you have a chat with us directly: http://tel.st/ua6v4 we'll be able to give a more precise answer.
