NBN updates in my area

Every few weeks I receive an email from Telstra telling me there will be an NBN network update in my area which may affect my service over four hours on the given day. While the email goes on to tell me my service won't be affected (although it often is), my question is - are these network updates a part of ongoing NBN life? Will services always be affected every few weeks? Or is it because NBN is new to my area and is still getting settled in? 

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: NBN updates in my area

It is mostly because the NBN has just been rolled out in your area. There will be ongoing maintenance outages, but they should only cause 5 minute interruptions every few months at the most.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
