Types of Internet connections in Wollongong
Looking for broadband for your home in “the Gong”? Well, you have a lot of options! But here at Compare Broadband, we try to streamline the often daunting process of setting up your home broadband. Wollongong has all of the major internet service providers (or ISPs), with each of them offering a vast array of different broadband plans. There are also a lot of different internet connections found in Wollongong, including NBN, Cable, Home Wireless, and ADSL2+; so the first thing you need to do is work out what internet connection works best for your house. Not every home is equipped for every internet connection; for example, no home is both ADSL2+ compatible and NBN compatible, as all ADSL connections are disconnected once an area has been upgraded to the NBN.
To find out what connection, plans and providers are best for you and your home, enter your suburb or postcode into the search bar above and click “Compare Now”. Our search engine will ask you some questions regarding how much data you need and how much you want to spend, so it can then narrow down a list of options specifically tailored to your needs. Easy!

Types of NBN connections in Wollongong
The NBN service is already largely activated across Wollongong; there are still some remaining areas where construction is still ongoing, but not for long, as the Wollongong rollout should be fully completed by the end of 2020. To find out if your home has been upgraded to the NBN, enter your address into the NBN rollout map below. Be sure to enter your full address for accurate results. If your home already has NBN service, you can search for the best NBN plans in Wollongong here.
As the NBN is a multi-technology mix, there are several different types of NBN connections found in Wollongong, including Hybrid Fixed Coaxial (HFC), Fibre to the Basement (FTTB), Fibre to the Curb (FTTC), Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), and Fixed Wireless. Regrettably, not all NBN connections are equal in quality, and customers don’t get to choose which one they are given; the choice of which NBN connection you are allocated is made by the NBN Co, the governing body responsible for the design and operation of the NBN (an unpopular practice known as the “NBN Lottery”). The rollout map below will also tell you what kind of NBN connection you have been designated.
But if you are experiencing difficulties with your NBN performance, you should immediately call your NBN provider to troubleshoot it. The problem may be as simply as a loosed cable. However, if the problem is indeed due to your NBN connection, then you might want to consider getting an NBN plan with more data and a higher speed tier so you can try and counter. Conversely, you may want to consider a Home Wireless plan.
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.
