To help with the transition to the nbn™ broadband access network, all eligible unmonitored medical alarm users have the opportunity to upgrade to an eligible new unmonitored medical alarm device through a participating device supplier at a reduced cost. If you’re eligible for this upgrade offer, you could purchase an eligible new device from a participating device supplier at a discounted price of up to 80% off the regular price, up to a maximum of $300 off.
To be eligible, you will need to meet a list of criteria, which is provided in more detail at www.nbnco.com.au.
The benefits of using this upgraded medical alarm include:
connection to a mobile network meaning in the event of a power outage, your device will utilise a mobile network rather than a land line
an in-built battery backup that can last up to 40 hours in a power outage
the same functions as your current alarm where you can call family, friends, neighbours or 000 when you press the emergency button for help
optional professional monitoring meaning that if you need it any time, you can switch to a professional monitoring service, at an additional charge.
To find out more about the upgrade, please go to www.nbnco.com.au or ask one of our friendly staff.
