How to access Instant Connect and 4G Backup.

While you’re waiting for Vodafone nbn™ to be installed, you can use the complimentary Instant Connect feature on your Vodafone Wi-Fi Hub™ to access our mobile network until your Vodafone nbn™ service is activated – or for a maximum of 30 consecutive days, whichever occurs first. This means you won’t be without an internet connection prior to installation.

If you’re unable to connect to Vodafone nbn™ because of a fault on your line, you can connect to our mobile network with the 4G Backup feature on your Vodafone Wi-Fi Hub™. This will give you access to the internet through our mobile network while the fault is resolved.

You can use our coverage checker to see where mobile coverage is available. Max speeds are 12Mbps for downloads and 1Mbps for uploads, however actual speeds vary depending on your network coverage, content and location. Fair Use Policy at time of purchase applies. T&C apply.
