Types of NBN connections in Rockhampton
The NBN (which stands for National Broadband Network) is a government owned initiative that was designed and implemented with the intention of upgrading all of Australia’s internet infrastructure. The NBN is replacing Australia’s old copper line network with a typically more effective optic fibre cable network, with the aim of supplying all Aussie end-users with faster and more reliable home internet broadband. NBN connections commonly found in Rockhampton and its surrounding areas include include Fixed Wireless, Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), Fibre to the Curb (FTTC), Fibre to the Basement (FTTB), and Fibre to the Node (FTTN).
Some NBN connections are known to work more effectively than others, but we do not get to choose what NBN connection is assigned to our home; different connection types are designated to different streets (this has been derisively dubbed as the NBN Lottery). However, if you are unhappy with your NBN connection service, you can usually counter it by opting for an NBN plan with more data and a faster NBN speed. Additionally, a slow internet performance may not necessarily be because of your NBN connection type, it may be due to any number of things, from a loosened cable to a misplaced fish-tank that’s blocking your Wi-Fi signal. If ever you are experiencing any kind of home broadband difficulty, your first and best plan of action is to call your internet service provider as soon as you can to see if they can simply work it out for you over the phone.
The NBN in Rockhampton is largely completed, though there are still many areas where construction is still underway. The NBN Co have officially announced that they are on track to have the NBN rollout 100% completed nationwide by the end of 2020, so if you are not yet in an NBN active zone, you soon will be. Once your home is NBN ready, you can search for NBN plans in Rockhampton and the best NBN providers in Rockhampton here. ADSL2+ is still a viable option in those areas where the NBN is still being constructed, but it’s important to know that once an area is made NBN active, the copper lines in that area are then disconnected. This means that NBN ready zones no longer have access to working ADSL or ADSL2+ connections. You should be given around 18 months notice before the copper lines near your home are deactivated, but if you’d like an exact date, you will need to call your current internet service provider. If you are unsure of the NBN status of your home, enter your full address into our NBN rollout map below, and it will tell you. If your area is still under NBN construction, the map will tell you roughly when you can expect it to be finished, as well as what NBN connection type has been designated to your area.
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.
