Types of Internet connections in Sunshine Coast
The Sunshine Coast is brimming with markets, beaches and an ample range of broadband connections! You will be able to find the NBN, ADSL2+, and Home Wireless internet on the Sunshine Coast; if you’re one of the lucky ones, you may even be in a zone that’s got 5G coverage!
The best Sunshine Coast internet for you is ultimately going to depend on your specific address, as there are some connections that don’t extend to certain regions; not every home is optimal for every kind of internet connection. Similarly, not every internet service provider (or ISP) can guarantee sufficient coverage in every location, so the first thing you need to do is find out what specific broadband type is best in your area. You can do this by simply writing your suburb or postcode into the search bar above. Our algorithm will also recommend the best plans for you based on your specific internet habits and desired budget. Happy comparing!

Types of NBN connections in Sunshine Coast
Sunshine Coast NBN connection types include Fixed Wireless Connection, Hybrid Fiber-Coaxial Cable (HFC), Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), Fibre to the Curb (FTTC), Fibre to the Node (FFTN), and FTTB (Fibre to the Basement). Most of the Sunshine Coast has already been made NBN active. There are still some areas still under construction, the NBN Co have announced that their rollout will be fully completed nationwide by the end of 2020. If your home is NBN active, you can compare the best NBN plans on the Sunshine Coast and the best providers on the Sunshine Coast here. If you’re in an area where the NBN is still under construction, you’ll likely want to consider ADSL2+ or a home wireless plan.
If you’re not sure whether or not your home is NBN ready, you can check your NBN status by entering your address into the NBN rollout map below. Be sure to write your full address though; until the NBN is fully completed, the difference between a zone that has NBN and a zone that hasn’t can often be as slight as one street. The map will also tell you what NBN connection type your home has been allocated. Some NBN connection types are known to be typically more effective than others, but unfortunately residents don’t get to choose what type they are given - different NBN connections are designated to different areas (this is what has been dubbed the “NBN Lottery”). However, if you find you are having issues with your NBN performance, you can generally counter this by choosing a plan that has a decent amount of data and a faster tier NBN speed. It’s also important that you call your internet provider to report any difficulties, as they might be able to easily help you solve the problem.
NBN Providers on the Sunshine Coast typically offer different NBN speeds in different packages so that customers can choose the speed (along with the data and cost) that best suits them. The four NBN speed tiers available in the Sunshine Coast 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.
