Types of NBN connections in Armidale
The NBN is a Multi Technology Mix (also known as an “MTM”) which means that there are several different kinds of NBN connection types made from different technologies, as opposed to one standard connection type. This happened after a change in Federal Government which resulted in budget cuts to the NBN’s roll out. The different kinds of NBN connection types found in Armidale including FTTB (Fibre to the Basement), Fixed Wireless, HFC (Hybrid Fibre-Coaxial), FTTP (Fibre to the Premises), and FTTN (Fibre to the Node). Regrettably, some connection types don’t work quite as reliably as others, but NBN customers not not get to choose what connection type they are given; instead, the NBN Co decides which NBN connections go where, an unpopular choice now known as the NBN Lottery. However, if you have been designated an NBN connection type that is affecting your NBN’s performance speed, you can try countering the lag by upgrading to a faster NBN speed tier, or a plan that unlimited NBN data. Keep in mind that doing this is typically more costly, so you may also wish to consider seeing if there are any alternative broadband options in your area, such as Home Wireless.
Fibre to the premises / home
When the NBN project initially commenced, the government at the time intended to roll out fibre optic cabling all the way up to your home or business property. This type of connection is call Fibre to the premises/home
Fibre to the node
Mid-way through the NBN roll-out, a change in Government leadership saw some funding constraints which lead to a slightly different roll-out approach for the NBN. This approach involves an amalgamation of original copper systems and fibre optic systems. This is referred to as Fibre to the node (FTTN).
Fixed wireless connection
In some cases - particularly in remote locations - it would be impractical or too expensive to physically connect a property to the fibre-optic network. In such cases properties will be connected by a wireless network. This is referred to as a Fixed Wireless NBN connection.
