Looking for reliable home internet in Toowoomba, Queensland? There are a lot of options out there, and finding the right one for you can be a little daunting if you don’t know where to look. The first thing to be aware of is that there are many different types of internet connections. Some of the several different kinds of internet connections found in Toowoomba include the NBN, Naked DSL, ADSL2+, and Cable. The best kind of internet connection for you usually depends on your address.

Types of NBN connections in Toowoomba
The National Broadband Network, more commonly known as the NBN - is a mix-technology, meaning there are several different kinds of NBN connections made up of different technologies. Some of the different types of of NBN connections found in Queanbeyan include FTTN (Fibre to the Node), FTTP (Fibre to the Premises), FTTB (Fibre to the Basement), HFC (Hybrid Fibre-Coaxial), and Fixed Wireless. Some of these NBN connections are known to work better than others, but NBN customers don’t get to choose what NBN connection their home is given (a maligned policy now known as the NBN Lottery). However, if you are unhappy with a sluggish NBN connection, you can usually counter this by selecting an NBN deal of a higher speed tier. You may also wish to consider a 5G home broadband plan, if you’re lucky enough to be in an early 5G coverage rollout zone (which some of Toowoomba already is; more on that below!). To learn if your home has been given an NBN upgrade - and to find out what sort of NBN connection your home has been designated - enter your full address into the NBN rollout map below. If you already have an active NBN service, you can compare the best Toowoomba NBN plans and providers here.
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.
