Types of NBN connections in Orange
The NBN, which stands for National Broadband Network, is a government owned enterprise that was designed and implemented with the aim of upgrading Australia’s internet infrastructure by replacing the country’s old copper line network and replacing it with a generally faster and more reliable fibre optic cable network. The NBN is currently a Multi Technology Mix (also known as “MTM”), which means there are several different kinds of NBN connections composed of different technologies. The different kinds of NBN connection types found in Orange including Fixed Wireless, HFC (Hybrid Fibre-Coaxial), FTTB (Fibre to the Basement), FTTP (Fibre to the Premises), and FTTN (Fibre to the Node).
Unfortunately, some NBN connection types are known to be more reliable than others, but you do not get to decide what NBN connection type is installed in your house. As per a policy that is referred to as the NBN Lottery, it is up to the NBN Co (the government body who is in charge of building and operating the NBN) to determine what manner of NBN connection type is allocated to your house based on the location of your home. However, if you are unhappy with the quality of service your NBN connection is providing, you can try to counter it it's lacklustre speed by opting for an NBN plan that has a higher NBN speed tier and/or a higher amount of data per month. Alternatively, you may even wish to consider an alternative home broadband connection such as Home Wireless; but it’s always worth remembering that a lacklustre NBN service may not due to the NBN connection type, but could be caused by anything from planned maintenance to a dislodged cable to something in your house blocking the WiFi. As such, it’s always advised that you call your broadband provider to troubleshoot the issue before you take any further steps. To find out if your home is NBN ready, type your full and accurate address into the NBN rollout map below. The map will tell you if your home is ready for NBN service, and if it is not, the map will tell you roughly when you can expect to receive your upgrade. The map will also tell you what kind of NBN connection type has been designated to your area. If your home is already upgraded to the NBN service, or you are simply interested in upgrading to a better NBN plan, you can compare the best Orange NBN plans and providers 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.
