We’re on a mission to close the digital gap

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 37,820 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).

What does a stable internet connection mean to a family who’s been going without?

Access to education

Because all Aussie kids deserve the same opportunities as their classmates.

Employment opportunities

Gone are the days of newspaper job adverts. An internet connection enables easier job searching.

Access to services

With so many essential services moving online, this one’s a no-brainer.

Social inclusion

The internet provides a space for friendships, community, news and updates.

Improving digital literacy

As we become more reliant on the internet, it’s never been more important to build up online skills.

A level playing field

Every Aussie family and kids should be given the same opportunities from the get-go.
