Types of Internet connections in SA
There are many different internet connections available in South Australia, including the NBN, Cable, and Home Wireless. The best connection for you will depend on your internet needs, but also your specific location. Most homes are not compatible with every different internet connection, so you will need to find out which connection your home is best equipped for before you look for a plan and provider that suits you. You can do all of the above simply by entering your postcode or suburb into the search engine above and clicking “Compare”.

Types of NBN connections in SA
The NBN South Australia rollout is predominantly completed. There are few remaining patches that are not yet NBN ready, but build has commenced and these areas should be NBN active soon. The NBN is a multi-technology mix, which means there are several different types of NBN connections. Some of the different NBN connections commonly found in South Australia include HFC (Hybrid Fibre Coaxial), FTTB (Fibre to the Basement), FTTP (Fibre to the Premises), FTTH (Fibre to the Home), and Fixed Wireless. Some NBN connections are found to be far more reliable than others, but regrettably, customers don’t get to choose what NBN connection they are given; this choice is governed by the NBN Co, the government owned corporation responsible for designing, building and operating the NBN. However, you can typically counter a lacklustre NBN connection by selecting an NBN plan that has a higher speed tier and a good amount of data. But first and foremost, if you are unhappy with your NBN performance, the best thing you can do is immediately call your NBN provider to see if the problem can’t be quickly and easily fixed.
To find out your home’s NBN status, you can use our NBN coverage map for South Australia below. The map will tell you if your home is ready for the NBN, and if it’s not, when you can expect it to be. The map will also tell you what kind of NBN connection the NBN Co has designated to your area. If your home is already NBN ready, you can compare NBN plans for South Australia 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.
