A significant weather event is predicted to occur over the next few days, especially impacting Central and Western Queensland.
For residents and businesses in Western and Central Queensland with equipment connecting to internet services through the nbn™ broadband access network, your equipment will not work during a power blackout.
Even with network power resiliency and in-premises battery backup, power outages may last longer than the battery life. We recommend you have a back up plan in place in case you are without internet and telephone services for some time.
If you haven’t yet done so, now would be a good time to put your emergency kit together which includes a charged mobile phone.
