Types of NBN connections in Blue Mountains
There are several types of NBN connections commonly in found in the Blue Mountains, such as Fibre to the Node (FTTN), Fibre to the Curb (FTTC), Hybrid Fiber-Coaxial Cable (HFC), Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), FTTB (Fibre to the Basement), and Fixed Wireless Connection.
Some NBN connection types are known to be more effective than others, but unfortunately, we do not get to choose what NBN connection we receive; the NBN Co allocate different NBN types to different areas. If you are unhappy with the NBN connection your home has been designated, the first thing you should do is call your internet provider to see if they can determine the specific cause of the problem. While the problem might be due to the connection type or the infrastructure, it might also be something very easily fixed, such as a loose cable or an item in your home blocking the Wi-Fi signal.
If you would like to learn what NBN connection type has been chosen for your area, enter your address into the rollout map below. Be sure to put your full and accurate address, as until the NBN is fully completed (which should happen by the end of 2020), the difference between a zone that’s NBN active and a zone that is not could be as slight as one street. If you do not yet have the NBN, our NBN rollout map will tell you when you can expect it and what connection type is planned for your area. If your home is in a neighborhood that has already been upgraded to the NBN, you can start comparing Blue Mountains NBN plans here.
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.
