To boost education opportunities and narrow the digital divide, the Australian Government is working with NBN Co to provide up to 30,000 families with no internet at home, free NBN for 12 months.
To be eligible, families with school age children will be nominated by participating schools, education
authorities and charities/community organisations. These organisations will identify and provide information
directly to families within their respective systems about the initiative.
To be eligible, a family must:
• Have a child living at home that is enrolled in an Australian school in 2023.
• Be referred by a nominating organisation. This will include consideration of whether your child has access to a device and the digital skills to use the internet safely.
• Have no active NBN service.
