The Albanese Labor Government is narrowing the digital divide through the School Student Broadband Initiative, supporting 30,000 more families to get connected to the NBN for free!

Tis important initiative is just another way we're reducing the cost of living and delivering for Australian families.

To be eligible, a family must:

  • Have a child living at home that is enrolled in an Australian school.
  • Have no active broadband service over the NBN network.
  • Live in a premise where they can access a standard NBN service.
  • Not have had an active NBN service during the previous 14 days.

Families can directly contact the National Referral Centre to have their eligibility assessed or be referred by a participating nominating organisation.

If you think your family or someone you know is eligible they can contact the National Referral Centre on 1800 954 610 to find out more or click here for online information.
