  1. Important Things you Need to Know

 

Availability

 

  • The Products are available through the following Services:
    1. NBN Service:
      1. Kogan nbn™ is a fixed broadband data-only Service (“NBN Service”) that allows you to send and receive data (including access to the internet and internet content) via the National Broadband Network (‘NBN Network’). The NBN Service is not available in all areas or premises and is subject to a service qualification check which will be discussed with you when you sign-up to an eligible Product. The possible technologies used to deliver the NBN Service will depend on the connection between your premise and the NBN Network which may include:
        1. the NBN Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) Service – This Service type uses a fibre cable that connects the NBN Network from the nearest available node directly to your premises. This Service requires an Network Termination Device (“NTD”) to be installed inside your home which must be installed by an NBN technician and requires power to operate;
        2. the NBN Fibre to the Base (FTTB) Service – This Service type is typically used if you live in an apartment block or a similar type of building. A fibre cable is connected to the building’s communications room and existing technology within the building is then used to connect the NBN Service to each apartment;
        3. the NBN Fibre to the Node (FTTN) Service – This Service type uses the existing copper wires to connect from a nearby FTTN cabinet or node to your premises;
        4. the NBN Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) Service – This Service type is typically used where the existing pay television or cable network can be used to connect to the NBN Service. The fibre will run from the nearest node to your premises. This Service requires an NTD to be installed inside your home which must be installed by an NBN technician and requires power to operate;
        5. the NBN Fibre to the Curb (FTTC) Service – This Service type uses the existing copper wires to connect from a fibre connection close to your premises.
      2. You may only use the NBN Service in one location over the Vodafone network. Unless otherwise stated, only one Product can be used per connection to the Vodafone network.

 

  • The Products are for personal use only by approved customers and are not available to business/corporate and commercial customers.
  • The Products referred to in the Terms are only available with an approved device provided to you at the time of purchase.
  • The Products are available online via koganinternet.com.au.
  • The Products are available to approved customers who provide valid identification.

 

Factors affecting availability and performance

 

  • There are several factors that may affect the availability and performance of certain Products for the following Services:
    1. NBN Service:
      1. The Product that you choose will determine the access connection speed for the NBN Service. This is the maximum connection speeds provided to us by NBN. The relevant maximum connection speed for your Product is detailed in the table below titled ‘Minimum monthly spend and minimum contract terms for Kogan nbn™ Products.’
      2. The theoretical maximum connection speeds available to you are as follows:
        1. NBN 12 Product: 12Mbps (for downloads) and 1Mbps (for uploads).
        2. NBN 50 Product: 50Mbps (for downloads) and 20Mbps (for uploads); and
        3. NBN 100 Product: 100 Mbps (for downloads) and 40 Mbps (for uploads).
  • The actual speeds for the NBN Service are variable and you will typically experience slower speeds than the theoretical maximum connection speed available.
  1. The performance and speed of your NBN Service depends on number of factors which include but are not limited to: choice of Product, location, the number of devices connected to your network, modem type, quality and positioning, Wi-Fi performance, in-building wiring, content accessed, the NBN technology used to deliver the NBN Service, how much capacity Vodafone has purchased from NBN, our network and internet traffic demand.
  2. During peak usage times are between 7-11pm (inclusive), seven days per week you will experience speeds below the theoretical maximum connection speed available. Further, you will likely also experience lower speeds than the theoretical maximum connection speed during off peak usage times. Please refer to our Speed Guide page available at: https://goo.gl/tcbDrN for more information on speed.
  3. For FTTB and FTTN technologies, theoretical maximum attainable speeds vary and will be confirmed once you are connected to your NBN Service. If after connection your plan is not supported by the theoretical maximum attainable speed available then we will contact you with more information and provide you with other options.

Data Services

 

  • Your use of the internet
    1. Once you are connected to the NBN Service and have set up the Kogan Internet Modem you will be continuously connected to the internet and using data. Data usage includes both data you send (upload) and receive (download).
    2. Your use of the NBN Service and accessing data is subject to the Vodafone Fair Use Policy.
    3. Subject to your rights under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 or other relevant legislation (including the Australian Consumer Law), Vodafone does not make any warranty regarding any software or data provided to you, including with respect to how that software or data operates on your computer or interacts with your other applications.

Installation and Appointments

 

  • The Installation process for your NBN Service will vary depending on the Service technology type available at your premises. We will inform you of the process for installation at your premises when you sign-up to a Product. This process will either be ‘Self-Installation’ or ‘Assisted Installation.’ For Self-Installation you will not require an NBN technician to attend your premises for installation. For Assisted Installation we will organise for an NBN technician to attend your premises to install the NBN Service. The technician may have to install specific equipment or infrastructure detailed further below under Equipment and Cabling. If you require Assisted Installation by an NBN technician, they will need access to your premises.
  • Regardless of which installation process is applicable to you, we will notify you that your service has been activated and you can then connect to the NBN Service with your Kogan Internet Modem.
  • If you wish to reschedule an appointment, you must provide us with at least 24 hours’ notice. If you do not provide us with this notice or you miss a scheduled appointment you may be charged a late cancellation or missed appointment fee. These are discussed further below under Rates and Charges.
  • We may also reschedule an appointment with you and will aim to give you reasonable notice of any change to appointment date and time. We are not solely responsible for installation or repair of your NBN Service and as such cannot guarantee that your appointment will go ahead at the agreed date and time. We will work with NBN to try to reschedule at a date and time that is suitable to you. 
  • We do not offer Professional or Non-Standard Installations.
  • Where NBN advises that you have additional installation requirements such as trenching or other works in order for installation to be completed, you will be responsible for arranging and paying for these works directly via a qualified third party. NBN, Kogan or Vodafone are not responsible for these costs.

 

Access to Premises and Consent

 

  • If you require Assisted Installation by an NBN technician or for any NBN appointment, you must be present or have an authorised representative aged 18 years or over to be present.
  • You must also provide consent for NBN to access your premises to supply the NBN Network, install, inspect, maintain, upgrade, repair, reinstate, remove, disconnect or perform any other necessary work.

  • Kogan Internet is not required to provide you with technical support if you use non-Kogan Internet supplied data service access hardware (such as your own modem), although Kogan Internet may do so at its discretion.

NBN Service faults
