Argyle Housing is participating in the Australian Governments, School Student Broadband Initiative (SSBI)
The School Student Broadband Initiative will provide free home internet for one year for up to 30,000 unconnected families with school aged students, nationally. NBN Co is leading implementation of this initiative.
We know that children who can access online learning at home as part of their education are more likely to engage in classroom activities. Access to fast internet at home can also support children to build their digital skills, learn how to safely use the internet and participate in a world that is more reliant on digital technology.
As a nominating organisation, Argyle Housing is proud to be offering this service to eligible Argyle Housing Clients.
To be eligible, families must:
If you are eligible, the home internet service will be provided at no cost for one-year through a participating internet provider over the National Broadband Network. These internet providers will have their own step-by-step process to get you connected, which may involve you providing identification.
Once you sign up, the internet provider will help you to set up your connection. The initiative does not include devices such as a computer or tablet. Other members of the household can use the internet service provided through this initiative.
The one-year period will start from the day your service is activated with your chosen participating internet provider. At the end of the one-year period, you should not be placed onto a paid service by your internet provider without your consent. The Australian Government is considering options beyond the one-year free period.
We have worked with NBN to identify eligible Clients.
We will send our eligible Clients a letter of offer over the next few weeks.
The letter will include a unique coupon number with simple instructions on how to sign up.
