LBN Co is now part of Opticomm: Here's what you need to know
The Local Broadband Network (LBN Co.) was an alternative to NBN in some locations. It's now part of the Opticomm group.
As part of ongoing efforts to improve the network and services for customers, LBNCo consolidated into the Opticomm Networks brand.
Nothing will change for existing customers - their connections will still work the same, and they will continue to be supported by the same support team they’ve always dealt with.
At Compare Broadband, we can connect customers to the Opticomm Networks and if you want to learn more, contact us and get connected.
What does LBN stand for?
LBN stands for Local Broadband Network. It is a fibre-optic-based communication technology designed to deliver high-speed internet access to homes and business premises.
Is LBNCo an FTTP?
Yes, LBNCo is an FTTP (Fibre-To-The-Premises) connection. This means that the fibre optic cable runs directly from the exchange to your premises, providing a dedicated link for your internet access.
What's the difference between NBN and LBN?
NBN is a mix of connection technologies, including FTTN (Fibre-To-The-Node) and HFC (Hybrid Fibre Coaxial). LBN is an FTTP connection that uses fibre optic cable exclusively. This provides higher speeds than NBN connections due to the lack of copper wiring. It also has a better latency and more reliable performance.
Do I need a technician to install LBN?
No, you do not need to hire a technician. With LBN's low copper usage for installation, it is easy for customers to connect to the network without any assistance.
Can I get an LBN connection if I'm in a non-Opticomm area?
No, LBN is only available within OptiComm and former LBNCo-connected communities. To see if you are in the eligible coverage areas, please call Compare Broadband for more information.
