The NBN (or National Broadband Network) is a government enterprise designed and implemented to upgrade Australia’s internet infrastructure by replacing the old copper line network with a generally faster and more reliable fibre optic cable network. It is an operation that is built and maintained by a government body named the NBN Co. The NBN is a Multi Technology Mix (a term that is often shortened simply to “MTM”), which means that there are different NBN connection types that are made up of different technologies. Some of the different kinds of NBN connection types found in Devonport are Fixed Wireless, HFC (Hybrid Fibre-Coaxial), FTTB (Fibre to the Basement), FTTP (Fibre to the Premises), and FTTN (Fibre to the Node). Some NBN connection types have been found to be less reliable than other types, but unfortunately, NBN customers don’t get to decide what NBN connection type is installed in their home, it is a decision that is made for them by the NBN Co, and is one that is based on location; this unpopular policy (which is now colloquially referred to as the NBN Lottery) is a consequence of recent changes in government which resulted in budget cuts to the NBN rollout. That said, if you find that you are dissatisfied with the performance of your NBN, you should contact your NBN provider to see if the problem can be troubleshooted. You may find that the issue is due to a loose cable or planned maintenance or something blocking the Wi-Fi rather than infrastructure. However, if you are indeed experiencing slow NBN speeds due to your NBN connection type, you may wish to try countering that by selecting an NBN deal that has a higher NBN speed tier as well as an NBN deal that has an ample amount of data. Alternatively, you want to consider an ulterior form of home broadband, such as Home Wireless.
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.
