Topic: Registering with a Retail Service Provider for NBN satellite dish installation

I would urge all residents and businesses on Christmas Island to register with a Retail Service Provider as soon as possible if you wish an NBN satellite dish installed on your premises in the coming weeks. The website address for initiating the registration process with the Retail Service Provider of your choice is http://www1.nbnco.com.au/connect-home-or-business/check-your-address.html

As per previous bulletins and community notices, you will need to place an order with a Retail Service Provider to be placed in the installation queue.

The installers on island will soon be completing the orders for satellite dish installations which they have received from the Retail Service Providers. Once this current workload is completed, the installers will leave Christmas Island and there may be a long delay before any additional dishes can be installed.

Without a satellite dish as back-up, you will not be able to readily access an alternative internet service at short notice should the need arise.
