Is the NBN Available at Your Home
The extensive upgrade of Australia’s existing landline, phone and internet network to the NBN system is said to change the way we live, work and play for decades to come.
You can see if your property is NBN ready now by checking your address at:
It might also show you which of the following NBN methods of connection will be available to you:
Fibre to the node (FTTN)
The fibre node is likely to take the form of a street cabinet. Each street cabinet will allow the nbn™ network signal to travel over optic fibre from the exchange to the cabinet, and connect with the existing copper network to reach your premises.
Fibre to the premises (FTTP)
An nbn™ Fibre to the premises connection (FTTP) is used in circumstances where an optic fibre line will be run from the nearest available fibre node, to your premises.
Fibre to the building (FTTB)
An nbn™ Fibre to the building (FTTB) connection is generally used when we are connecting an apartment block or similar types of buildings to the nbn™ network. In this scenario we run a fibre optic line to the building communications room – we then use the existing technology in the building to connect to each apartment.
Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC)
An nbn™ Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) connection is used in circumstances where the existing ‘pay TV’ or cable network can be used to make the final part of the nbn™ network connection. In this circumstance a HFC line will be run from the nearest available fibre node, to your premises.
