Well, here at Compare Broadband, we try to simplify the process of home broadband selection. Finding the best internet deal and provider for you is ultimately going to depend on your budget, your data usage, and your location.
Firstly, you’ll need to work out what kind of internet connection your home is best equipped for. There are several different types of internet connections found in the NT, including NBN, ADSL2+, Home Wireless, and Cable. Most homes aren’t compatible with every internet connection type; for example, if you’re in a house that’s got a working ADSL2+ connection, that means you’re in an area that is not yet NBN compatible. Conversely, if your home is NBN ready, that means that area can no longer get ADSL connections.
This is why your location is such an important factor in finding yourself the best broadband deal. To get started, enter your postcode or suburb into the white search bar above and click “Compare Now”.

Types of NBN connections in NT
The NBN, or National Broadband Network, is an enterprise designed and implemented by the Australian Government to upgrade Australia’s internet infrastructure by replacing the old copper line system with a more efficient fibre optic cable network. The NBN is designed and operated by a government corporation aptly named the NBN Co. Contrary to popular misconception, there is no set NBN speed; there are many different NBN packages available from different providers, with different data amounts and speed tiers. There are also several types of NBN connections out there, as the NBN is a multi-technology mix. Some NBN connection types typically work better than others, but unfortunately, NBN customers don’t get to choose what connection they are given; this choice is made by the NBN Co. It is an unpopular method that the media and public have since scornfully titled the NBN Lottery. That said, if you are saddled with a lower level NBN connection, you can still get the most out of it by opting for an NBN plan with a higher speed tier and an ample data pack.
To find out the NBN status of your home, write your address into the NBN rollout map below. Enter your full address for more accurate results. The map will tell you if your home is NBN ready, and if it’s not, it will tell you roughly when you can expect that to change.

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.
