Types of Internet connections in NSW
New South Wales is one of the biggest and oldest cosmopolitan states, with a thriving cultural melting pot with over 7.7 million people - so it’s little wonder that the Premiere State has had to ensure a solid and diverse array of internet connections! Some of the different types of broadband connections you can find in NSW include NBN, Naked DSL, ADSL2+, Cable, and Home Wireless (you’ll even be able to find the emerging cellular 5G network!).
There are many reputable NSW internet service providers (or ISPs) with many different broadband plans, and the best one for you is ultimately going to be determined by your budget and your data requirements, but also your location. Not every house is equipped for every type of internet connection, and not every ISP can guarantee sufficient coverage in every location, so to find out what kind of connection, plan and provider is best suited for your home, enter your postcode or suburb into the white search bar above and click Compare Now.

Types of NBN connections in NSW
To find out if your home is NBN ready, enter your address into the NSW NBN rollout map below. Be sure to write your full and accurate address, as until the NBN rollout is completed, the difference between an area that has NBN and an area that does not may be as slight as one street. If your home is not yet NBN active, the map will tell you when you can expect that to change. The map will also tell you what kind of NBN connection has been designated to your area. If your home already has the NBN, you can compare NBN plans in NSW here.
The NBN is a multi-technology mix, meaning that there are several different types of NBN connections that all work differently. Unfortunately, some NBN connections are typically more reliable than others, and customers are unable to select which connection their home is given (as system that has been derisively dubbed as the NBN Lottery). However, if a customer is experiencing subpar internet performance due to their NBN connection type, they can generally counter this by selecting an NBN plan that has more data and a higher NBN speed tier. Some of the different NBN connections found in NSW include Fixed Wireless, FTTN (Fibre to the Node), FTTP (Fibre to the Premises), and FTTB (Fibre to the Basement).
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.
