FAQs

What is NBN?

The National Broadband Network (NBN) is an Australian national wholesale open-access data network. The company aims to replace the old copper wires and cable broadband with optical fibre providing Aussies with faster, more reliable, high-capacity internet.


The NBNCo. is responsible for providing Internet Service Providers (ISPs) access to the data network, and these ISPs offer retail service and sell internet to end-users. Click here to find the best and cheapest NBN plans and deals.

How do I access the NBN?

NBN can be accessed through subscription with any of the Internet Service Providers.  They offer different kinds of internet plans to suit different budgets and needs.  But first, you have to check whether your address has NBN and the type of connection available in your vicinity.  Knowing your NBN connection helps you find the right plan and ISP for your needs.  

There are four types of NBN fibre connections where your home can connect to depending on the technology that was rolled out in your area:

  1. Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) – Also known as Fibre-to-the-Home, this type of connection is the best as the optical fibre is connected directly to your home, giving you the fastest broadband connection. However, this connection type is costly to pursue, and the government has backed down on its mass rollout. So if you wish to have this type of connection, make sure you are willing to shoulder the installation costs.
  2. Fibre-to-the-Node (FTTN) – FTTN is the most common or default type of connection. The connection runs from a central connection (the node) to your home along a traditional copper telephone wire. The nodes are located at the end of the street. Since it is cheaper, NBN Co. was able to roll this out quicker. However, its performance may not be as stable as FTTP since many users are sharing the same node, especially during peak hours.
  3. Fibre-to-the-Building (FTTB) – This type of connection is used for apartments or office blocks. The fibre runs through a central location in the building to multiple users.
  4. Fibre-to-the-Curb (FTTC) – FTTC offers a better connection than FTTN since the connection is closer to your home. The fibre optic cable is run to a street pit at a distance that’s closest to your premises. It is also known as Fibre-to-the-Driveway.
