3. Contact a phone or internet provider:

You won’t be connected to the nbn™ network automatically, so contact your preferred phone or internet service provider to discuss your requirements and select the most appropriate plan for your needs.
It’s a good idea to switch to the nbn™ network well before your disconnection date to allow time for your order to be processed, and for installation, if applicable.
