Types of NBN connections in TAS
NBN in Tasmania is largely completed, though there are many areas still to be upgraded. The NBN Co have announced that their rollout will be completed nationwide by the end of 2020, so if you’re no in an NBN active area, you soon will be. The NBN (or National Broadband Network) is an Australian government owned enterprise that is replacing our old copper line internet infrastructure with a typically more reliable fibre optic cable network. Once an area has been made NBN active, the old copper lines are cut off, and ADSL technology is no longer available in that area. To find out the broadband coverage and NBN status of your home, enter your address into our NBN map for Tasmania below. The map will also tell you what kind of NBN connection has been designated to your area, which might inform your selection of NBN plan.
While the NBN was designed and implemented with the intent of improving the country’s broadband service, there are some NBN connection types that are definitely less effective than others. Unfortunately, customers don’t get to choose what type of NBN connection their area is allocated. That said, if you are unhappy with your NBN connection, you can counter it by selecting an NBN plan with better data and a higher tier NBN speed. You can compare the best NBN providers for Tasmania here.
Some of the more commonly found NBN connections in Tasmania are Fibre to the Node (FFTN), Fibre to the Curb (FTTC), Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), Fixed Wireless Connection, and Hybrid Fiber-Coaxial Cable (HFC). There are four different Tasmanian NBN speeds available. You can choose the speed (along with the data and cost) that best suits you.
The four Queensland NBN speed tiers are;
- Basic evening speed: No minimum
- Standard evening speed: Minimum 15 Mbp
- Standard plus evening speed: Minimum 30 Mbps
- Premium evening speed: Minimum 60 Mbps
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.
