Did you know that around 2 million Australians are living without the internet?
And when we consider our reliance on the internet for education, essential services, social inclusion and employment opportunity…
It’s not exactly a fair go, is it?
That’s why we came up with a plan. A broadband plan
At Start Broadband, we help low-income Aussies get online. Thanks to our customers, we’ve delivered over 35,598 days of free internet. And we’re still going.
And the best part? You don’t have to do anything. Just by signing up to Start you’re giving back. You’re literally our favourite person for streaming Netflix in your trackies (tough job but someone’s gotta do it, eh?)
Where there’s internet, there’s opportunity
Kathy is one of the hundreds of Aussies we’ve connected to the internet through our Life-Changing Connections Program.
An absolute superwoman, Kathy is raising five children, volunteering in an aged-care home and is fluent in four languages. Yet securing paid work (and an internet connection) has been an uphill battle.
Thanks to our Start Customers, Kathy has a stable home internet connection. That means access to essential services, social inclusion and easier access to online study for her children (and no more daily trips to the local library).
