As NBN is rolled out across Whyalla and people are getting connected eventually the traditional telephone and internet services will be disconnected. Usually 18 months after NBN is live and ready to order, old landline and ADSL services will be cut off. Reports show that when an area becomes live for NBN a lot of people order a service within the first 3 months. After this the next spike in orders is towards the end of the 18 months just before old services are due to be disconnected.
