Types of NBN connections in Port Macquarie
The NBN is a mix-technology, which means there are several different technologies used for different NBN connections. There are several different NBN connection types found in Port Macquarie, including Fibre to the Node (FTTN), Fibre to the Basement (FTTB), Hybrid Fibre-Coaxial (HFC), Fixed Wireless, and Fibre to the Premises (FTTP). Some are known to perform better than others, but unfortunately, we don’t get to choose which one is installed in our home; this choice is made for us by the NBN Co, an unpopular policy since dubbed the NBN Lottery. However, if you are finding your NBN connection is providing a lackluster broadband performance, you may want to consider upgrading to an NBN plan that offers a higher NBN speed tier and/or more data per month. You should also call your NBN provider if you are experiencing any network issues, you may find the problem could be due to any number of things, from an NBN outage to a loose cable to a mirror blocking your Wi-Fi signal.
To find out what kind of NBN connection the NBN Co has designated to your home, enter your address into our NBN rollout map below. If you are not currently in an NBN active area, the map will tell you roughly when you can expect your NBN upgrade to happen. Be sure to use your full and accurate address for best results. You can also compare the best NBN plans and providers for your Port Macquarie area 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.
