You may be aware that the NBN last week announced a COVID-19 relief package, which includes support for low-income households with school-aged children who do not currently have an active NBN connection at home.
Aussie Broadband is one of the providers to sign up to this program, offering a limited number of six month free 25/5 NBN plans for eligible families.
Aussie Broadband is recommending that families choose the ‘join with your own modem’ option as they will not have modems available possibly until June. Their suggestion is to asks friends/family if they have an old modem somewhere at home. (or you may have one yourself)
They will use any modem for the connection.
The school will also endeavour to collect some old modems, so feel free to contact me if you need a modem.
