Types of Internet connections in Goulburn
Looking for a reliable broadband plan for home in Goulburn, NSW? There are many different kinds of internet connections found around Goulburn, such as ADSL2+, Cable, Naked DSL, Home Wireless, and the NBN. The best internet connection type for you is almost always dictated by where your property is, as internet connection types are designed to connect to the internet infrastructure that is most accessible from your home. As an example, if you live in a home where the NBN construction has been fully upgraded, then you will no longer be able to access any kind of ADSL connection in that area. Once you know what kind of internet connection type your home is working with, it’s easier to then find a broadband plan and an ISP (Internet service Provider) that caters to your budget, your location, and how much data you and your household need per month. To get started on making a shortlist, feel free to use our broadband plan search engine; simply enter your postcode into the search bar at the top of the page and then press “Compare Now”. Our website will ask you a few quick questions so it can work out what sort of deal you’re looking for, and then it will provide you with a whittled down shortlist of options that are tailored to you, your home, your data needs, and your wallet.

The map will be able to tell you if your residence is ready for an active NBN service, and if it is not, the map will tell you roughly when your location can expect a completion on its NBN upgrade. Either way, the map will be able to tell you what kind of NBN connection type has been allocated to your area.
The NBN (which stands for National Broadband Network) is an MTM (which stands for Multi Technology Mix. This basically means that there are different kinds of NBN connections that are made up of different technologies. This is because of a change in Australian Government that resulted in budget cuts to the NBN Co earlier in its rollout. The different kinds of NBN connection types found around Goulburn include Fixed Wireless, HFC (Hybrid Fibre-Coaxial), FTTB (Fibre to the Basement), FTTP (Fibre to the Premises), and FTTN (Fibre to the Node). Unfortunately, it’s been found that some NBN customers don’t work quite as well as others, but NBN customers do not get to choose what NBN connection is installed in their premises. This decision is made for you by the NBN Co based on the location of your home, and it is a policy that both the press and the public have referred to as the NBN Lottery. If you are given a lesser NBN connection type that you find is negatively impacting the performance speed of your NBN service, you may wish to upgrade to an NBN deal that either has more NBN data and/or one that is on a faster NBN speed tier. Conversely, you may wish to see if your home or office is accessible to an alternative form of broadband connection, such as Home Wireless. But before you try plans, make sure you call your NBN provider to see if they can help your troubleshoot the issue, as the problem may not be due to the NBN connection type; indeed, it could be anything from planned maintenance to something in your home blocking the Wi-Fi signal.
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.
