Types of NBN connections in QLD
The NBN in Queensland is largely completed. There are still large regions of Queensland that have not yet been upgraded to the NBN, but construction is underway and should be completed by the end of 2020. Until then, ADSL2+ is typically the most readily accessible internet connection in areas that are not yet NBN active. Once those areas are NBN ready, the ADSL2+ there will be permanently disconnected. You are generally given around 18 months written notice before this happens, but you can call your current internet service provider for a more exact date. If you’re unsure if your home is NBN active yet, scroll down and enter your address into our NBN coverage map for Queensland. The map will tell you if and when your home is NBN ready, and what manner of NBN connection has been allocated to your area. If your home is NBN ready, you can start comparing the best NBN deals in Queensland.
There are several different NBN Connections in Queensland, including Fixed Wireless, Fibre to the Curb (FTTC), Fibre to the Building (FTTB), Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), and Hybrid Fiber-Coaxial Cable (HFC). Some NBN connections are typically more effective than others, and we don’t get to choose the NBN connection we are allocated; the NBN Co allocates different connections to different areas.. That said, if you are unhappy with the performance of your NBN connection, you can often counter this by opting for a deal that has a better data and speed plan. There are four different Queensland NBN speeds available. You choose the speed you along with the data and cost that best suits you.
The four Queensland NBN speed tiers are;
- Basic evening speed: No minimum
- Standard evening speed: Minimum 15 Mbp
- Standard plus evening speed: Minimum 30 Mbps
- Premium evening speed: Minimum 60 Mbps
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.
