The NBN (which stands for National Broadband Network) is a Multi Technology Mix (or “MTM”), which effectively means there is no standard NBN connection type, but rather, several different kinds of NBN connection types that are all made up of different technologies. This is a result of budget cuts to the NBN’s rollout that happened early in its rollout following a change in Federal Government. Some of these NBN connection types are known to work a little less reliably than others, but unfortunately, NBN customers have not been able to choose what NBN connection type they get, this choice has been made for them by the NBN Co based on their locations. However, given how many millions of Australians have been made to work from home during the pandemic, there has been a push for a more dependable NBN service, and the same Federal Government has recently announced that by 2023 approximately 2 million homes will be able to get access to NBN fibre-to-the-home connections by 2023 in a $3.5 billion dollar plan.
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.
