Types of NBN connections in Sydney
Most of Sydney NBN has already been completed, and the rest will be fully completed and activated by the end of 2020. The different NBN connections in Sydney include Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), Fibre to the Curb (FTTC), Fibre to the Node (FTTN), Fixed Wireless, and FTTB (Fibre to the Building).
Compare Broadband can help you compare each of these connection types, and tell you when and where they are available. We can also help you compare pricing, contract length, and other factors that are important when finding the best and cheapest broadband plan for your home.
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.

Who is the best internet provider in Sydney?
Among the ISPs listed earlier, many Sydney locals still consider Telstra as the best ISP, which is also by far the largest one. In fact, over 50% of the country’s total NBN connections are through Telstra. Perhaps the only drawback is that you also get to pay more for most of their plans. The upside is that the amount of money you shell out is balanced by excellent typical evening speeds as well as 4G backup on its modem. In case you are considering Telstra plans, then aside from NBN, you can also choose from ADSL or mobile broadband, particularly if you need internet that you can take with you on the go. And if you are truly budget conscious, you should check out the NBN plans offered by Belong, which is Telstra’s budget brand.
