Fibre-Coaxial), FTTB (Fibre to the Basement), FTTP (Fibre to the Premises), and FTTN (Fibre to the Node).

The map will tell you also what manner of NBN connection has been designated to your street.
The NBN has had a prolonged and complicated rollout; due to bureaucracy and budget cuts that happened towards the start of its build, the NBN is now a Multi Technology Mix (or MTM), which means different NBN connections are made from different technologies. Some NBN connections are built to be a bit more effective than others, but unfortunately, you don’t get to choose what type you get, this decision is made by the NBN Co and is based on the location of your home. This unpopular policy is now colloquially known as the NBN Lottery. However, if you find you have been allocated a less than optimal NBN connection type, you may find that you can still improve your home NBN performance speeds by upgrading to an NBN plan that has more data or a higher NBN speed tier.

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.
