It's time to play everyone's favourite game, where you enter your address into the NBN checker only to get thoroughly depressed.
The only reason to play this miserable game yet again is because the NBN has updated its online "address checker". Previously it would give you a rough date as to when your home or business would be connected to the NBN, but now it lets you know what technology will be connecting you to the NBN, and when you can chat to a retailer to get online.
John Simon, chief customer officer for NBN Co, said in a statement that "we have moved away from telling people when we'll be building in their neighbourhood to when they can contact their retailer to buy a service". It makes sense: finding out that the NBN is under construction in your area only leads to a lot of wasted calls and emails to retailers, which is a bit of a waste of time (and anxiety).
"As the nature of the rollout requires a certain level of flexibility, nbn will continue to refresh the website to reflect any changes with the rollout," the statement added.
If you want to check your own address, you can do so here. As for myself...
