The NBN roll-out is past the halfway point, with over 3 million properties now connected and millions more all ready to make the switch. With new improvements to internet speed and reliability, the change to NBN provides the perfect opportunity to advance your business phone systems.
You can now go to the NBN website and get a Business Readiness Checklist which allows you to enter your business requirements for your internet, phone systems, alarm system, ATM services and other cloud-based areas of your business. It’s a downloadable Business Readiness Checklist list for important business services that you will need to follow up after your NBN is connected.
What services are affected?
With NBN the old copper phone lines being disconnected within 18 months of your NBN connection, this will allow your business the opportunity to implement new cloud-based phone options. We can offer guidance on your journey as you look to digitise your business telephone services.
As most existing landline phone and internet services will be disconnected, it’s important you switch affected services before your disconnection date, even if you only use a landline phone, which will operate as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) over the nbn™ access network.
IP telephony e.g. VoIP
The NBN website suggests to help reduce disruption throughout your switch you should contact the provider of your equipment and/or internet service for advice on compatibility with services provided over the nbn™ broadband access network.
The NBN website also suggests that you should speak to your preferred provider about your data requirements for these services.

Why A Cloud Hosted PBX?
Combining an NBN connection with our hosted phone system means guaranteed reliability. So, if disaster strikes your phone system will continue to operate independently from its data centre allowing you to continue to receive calls via the set up you have, if you decided to have a queue, it will still answer your call and follow the process, even go to voicemail where necessary.
You can however jump onto our easy to use software and change your call process so that the calls go straight to your mobile whilst your power or other services are down. Never miss a call again!
With a hosted phone system, you only need one number independent to your office location so if you happen to move, your business number moves with you even across multiple sites. You will also find moving your phone system to the cloud means you’ll enjoy excellent call quality, clear sound, no break ups, drop outs or disconnections. You can even pick up your handset and take it with you, as long as you have internet your desk phone will work like it's on your desk in the office.
To address quality, we need to get a little technical….
For comparison, maximum download speeds for ADSL and NBN connections are:
NBN: 100,000kbps - That’s a lot more kilobits per second!
The phones only need a small amount of kbps to operate so you can change your system before the NBN rolls out and once your area becomes NBN ready the change over will be an easy process. Let us help you get your set up right the first time.
Don’t hesitate, think about what your business might need right now with the Business Readiness Checklist so that you are completely NBN ready before the roll out happens, and if its already happened, think about how you can receive an extremely professional business telephone system and also take advantage of the massive savings.
