Free home internet access for eligible families

Students and families who have inadequate or no access to internet at home are eligible to apply for a free internet connection to support learning.

There are 2 options available to eligible families:

  • wireless internet access from the Department for Education through the student home internet program
  • NBN broadband internet access until December 2025 from the Australian Government through the School Student Broadband Initiative.

You might be eligible if you:

  • have a school aged child
  • don’t have reliable home internet access or have no active NBN broadband connection.
