How do I get Ultra-fast Broadband?

The fibre optic network is being built by four telecommunications infrastructure companies; ChorusEnableNorth Power and Ultra-fast Fibre. These are called local fibre companies or LFC’s. More information on the expected completion dates for installation can be found on their websites.

If Ultra-fast broadband is available in your area then that is the service we’ll provide, for no extra cost. You can opt out of Ultra-fast broadband if you want.

2degrees Broadband will arrange your installation set up with your LFC. Typically installation involves 2-3 visits from your local LFC where they will determine the work that needs to be done and then install the devices required in your home. You will need to meet their technician’s onsite during these visits.
