Types of Internet connections in Newcastle

Searching for a new internet deal for your Newcastle home or office? There are a lot of choices out there, to the point that it can sometimes be a little daunting. But here at Compare Broadband, we aim to make the process of finding the right broadband fast and simple. There are many different types of internet connection found in Newcastle NSW, but the best one for you is ultimately going to depend on your specific location as most homes are not compatible with every type of connection. Additionally, while there are many major ISPs (internet service providers) operating in Newcastle, most ISPs are unable to guarantee sufficient coverage in every part of Australia. So to learn what the best internet connection, provider and plan is for your home, enter your address into the white search bar above and click “Compare”. Our search engine will then ask you a few quick questions about how much data you need and how much money you want to spend on broadband a month, so it can then whittle down a list of options that are tailored to your specifics.

Types of NBN connections in Newcastle

The NBN rollout in Newcastle is predominantly completed. There are few remaining patches that are not yet NBN ready, but build has commenced and these areas should be NBN active soon. The construction and subsequent operation of the NBN is handled by a government corporation aptly titled NBN Co, who have stated that the NBN rollout in Newcastle (and the rest of Australia) is expected to be completed nationwide sometime in 2020. As the NBN is a multi-technology mix, there are several different NBN connections commonly found in Newcastle, including Fixed Wireless, Fibre to the Curb (FTTC), Fibre to the Basement (FTTB) Hybrid Fibre-Coaxial (HFC) and Fibre to the Premises (FTTP). Some NBN connections are found to be more reliable than others, but you don’t get to choose what type you are given, this is decided by the NBN Co (a policy that is now scornfully referred to as the NBN Lottery). However, if you NBN connection is found wanting, you can likely still get a good performance out of it by opting for an NBN package that has a good amount of data and a higher speed tier.

To find out what NBN connection the NBN Co has designated to your street, enter your full address into the Newcastle NBN rollout map below. If you don’t yet have the NBN in your area, the map will tell you when you can expect it. Once your home is NBN active, you can compare the best NBN deals in Newcastle here.

Step 1 icon

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

Step 2 icon

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).

Step 2 icon

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.
