We’ll check your maximum speeds later
At some addresses, we’re unable to check the maximum speeds at your address until you’re connected. While we don’t have the information at this stage, we’ll notify you of your maximum download and upload speeds once you’re on your new plan.
If the maximum speed at your address is below the maximum speed of the plan you’ve chosen, we will advise you of the options available to you which may include (i) remaining on your current plan; (ii) moving to a lower priced plan (if one is available); (iii) cancelling your plan at no cost (not available to upgrading customers). If your options include changing or cancelling your plan, you’ll receive a proportionate refund for the period you didn’t receive the full benefit of your chosen plan.
Maximum speeds at your address
  • Download speed
    0000 - 0000  Mbps
  • Upload speed
    0000 - 0000  Mbps
What are my maximum speeds?
The maximum speed ranges are determined by the technology nbn co makes available at your home or business, and are the best estimate we can make of the fastest possible speeds of your connection, based on the information available. The speeds you’ll experience will usually be slower, particularly during busy periods, and may be impacted by things like your in-home set up and wiring. We’ll use the latest information when you’re on your new plan to confirm the maximum speeds at your address. When choosing a plan, you’ll see how the maximum speeds at your address relate to your plan options. This is important because you will not be able to experience the typical or maximum speeds of a plan if the speeds available at your address are lower.

More about connecting to ADSL

Can I get ADSL?

ADSL travels through a copper phone line, so if you've already got an active home phone line, you can get ADSL. Check your address if you're not sure.

Can I connect the modem myself?

Yes! We’ll send you all the installation info you need to set up your modem. You can also check out our modem setup guide.

FAQs - Connecting to ADSL

  • nbn connections use high-speed optical fibre and a range of other technologies to deliver internet to your home.
  • ADSL uses the copper phone network to deliver internet, and still allow you to use the line for a home phone service.
  • ADSL is generally slower than most nbn connections. ADSL speeds also get slower the further you are from the phone exchange.

ADSL connections are generally slower than many nbn connections. ADSL uses existing copper wire from the phone exchange to your home, while most nbn services use high-speed fibre optic cable at least as far as the exchange - and in some cases direct to your address.

Yes. The latest Telstra Smart Modem is fully nbn-compatible, so it will work on your ADSL connection and on whichever nbn connection you switch over to later.

Here’s the thing. Your distance from the phone exchange is the single biggest factor affecting your ADSL speed, because the longer a signal has to travel along copper wire, the slower it gets. So while you can’t pick which exchange you’re connected to, you can try a few tricks round the house to help improve slow ADSL speeds:

  • Reset your modem
  • Move the modem away from appliances, wireless electronics, furniture & metal objects
  • Try using a shorter ethernet cable
  • Check for viruses or malware on your devices
  • Install a DSL filter to reduce interference
  • Use a Wi-Fi extender

nbn co sets the cut-off date at 18 months after the nbn has become available in your area. If you’re in an area that is moving to FTTP, FTTN or HFC nbn connections, you need to migrate to the nbn before that date. nbn co sends everyone plenty of advance notice, as do service providers such as Telstra.

You don't need a home phone handset, but you do need a copper phone line to connect to ADSL internet. ADSL uses your existing copper line to connect you to the internet. You can also have a handset operating on that line, but you don't need it to connect to the intenret.
