      Hi Linda,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Generally, Once you’ve applied for your new NBN plan, your ISP will usually arrange for a technician to visit your home to complete the installation. You will also receive a new modem if you have opted for one and instructions on how to connect your devices to the network.
      The activation process after applying for a plan will depend on whether you’ve already had the NBN equipment installed at your premises and your internet provider. If your premises has the NBN equipment installed already you could be connected within 48-72 hours. If your property has yet to have the NBN equipment installed you can expect to wait up to 3-4 weeks for a technician to complete the installation. It would be nice also i you can clarify this directly with your provider.

      I hope this information has helped.

      Cheers,
      Harold

      Hi Natasha,

      You’ve come through to finder.com.au, not amaysim. Amaysim is a mobile broadband provider that operates on the Optus 4G network. So long as you have access to Optus 4G, you will be eligible for amaysim’s plans.

      Thanks,
      Brodie
