Eligible families can access 12 months free broadband over the NBN through the School Student Broadband Initiative (SSBI).
To be eligible for SSBI, families must meet the following criteria:
- Have a child living at home and enrolled in an Australian school.
- Be referred by a nominating organisation or self-nominate through the National Referral Centre
- Have no active broadband service over the NBN network.
- Live in a premise where they can access a standard NBN service.
The new National Referral Centre – led by Anglicare Victoria – now allows families to nominate themselves for the program directly, making it easier for households in need to get connected.
Families can contact the National Referral Centre by:
Phone: 1800 954 610 (Mon-Fri, 10am-6pm AEDT)
Or by visiting www.anglicarevic.org/au/student-internet
