Types of NBN connections in Launceston
The NBN (National Broadband Network) is a multi-technology mix, meaning that there are several different kinds of NBN connections found in Launceston, including Fixed Wireless, Fibre to the Cable (FTTC), Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), and Hybrid Fiber-Coaxial (HFC). Some connections are known to provide a more reliable NBN service, but unfortunately we do not get to choose which NBN connection type we get; this choice is made by the NBN Co, a process colloquially and derisively now known as the NBN Lottery.
NBN Australian rollout is close to complete, with the remaining homes due for their upgrades later in 2020. If you’re not sure if your home has been upgraded to the NBN network, pop your address into our rollout map below for a fast and free NBN check. The map will tell you if your NBN home service is ready to be connected, and if it’s not, it will tell you roughly when you can expect it to be. It will also tell you what manner of NBN connection the NBN Co has allocated to your area. If your home has already been upgraded to the NBN, you can compare the best NBN plans in Launceston 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.
