COVID-19 Education Assistance Package
nbn helping to connect family households with children
Although many schools have now returned to face-to-face teaching, nbn is continuing to help connect Australian families.
Our Education Assistance Package will continue to 30 September 2020, even though the need for home-schooling has changed.
Although many students have returned to full time, face-to-face schooling, nbn is still here to help phone and internet providers create more affordable offers to support families. Access to fast broadband can assist students complete their homework online, conduct research for school projects and access a wide range of additional online resources to support their continued learning.
To help Australians respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, nbn is providing up to $50 million to assist phone and internet providers to support family households with school-aged children who do not currently have an active nbn™ connection at home.
This funding will help phone and internet providers create more affordable offers to connect eligible families.
