Types of Internet connections in Burnie

Looking for a reliable broadband plan for home in Burnie, Tasmania? There are many different kinds of internet connections found in Burnie, such as Cable, ADSL2+, Home Wireless, Naked DSL, and the NBN. The best kind of internet connection for you will almost always depend on where you live, as different internet connections are typically best suited to different existing internet infrastructures in an area. As an example, if you live in an area where the NBN build is still under construction, then you may find that an ADSL2+ connection is a viable option in your home; conversely, if the NBN build has been completed in your area, then all of the ADSL2+ connections in that area will likely now be disconnected, as the NBN was designed to eventually phase out ADSL connections.

Sorting through the myriad of different plans and providers can be a bit of a daunting task for those lacking the time, which is why we’ve done our best to streamline the process; simply enter your postcode or your suburb into the search bar above and click “Compare Now”. Our system will ask you a few quick questions about how much data you need and how much you want to spend, and then it will whittle down a shortlist of the broadband providers and plans that are best for your location, your usage, and your wallet. It’s a fast and free service!

Types of NBN connections in Burnie

The NBN service is now available around many areas of Burnie. The NBN stands for the National Broadband Network; it is a government owned enterprise that was designed and implemented with the intention to upgrade Australia’s national internet infrastructure by replacing the old copper line network with a generally faster and more reliable fiber optic cable network. Due to a change in Federal Government which happened early in the NBN’s rollout, there were subsequent budget cuts that resulted in the NBN becoming a Multi Technology Mix (also known as “MTM”). This effectively means that there are several now different kinds of NBN connections, such as FTTB (Fibre to the Basement), FTTP (Fibre to the Premises), FTTN (Fibre to the Node), HFC (Hybrid Fibre-Coaxial), and Fixed Wireless. To find out if your home is ready for the NBN, scroll down to our NBN rollout map below and enter your full address. Be sure to enter your full and accurate address in order to receive the most accurate results. If you do not yet have active NBN service in your area the map will tell you approximately what month you can expect your residence to have its NBN upgrade completed. The map should also be able to tell you what kind of NBN connection has been designated to your home, regardless of whether your home is NBN ready. If your Burnie residence already has the NBN, you can compare the best Burnie NBN plans and providers here.

Step 1 icon

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

Step 2 icon

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).

Step 2 icon

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.
