Types of NBN connections in Geelong
The Geelong NBN rollout is already widespread, with the NBN Co citing that full construction will be completed in 2020. Common types of NBN connections include Fibre to the Node (FTTN), Fibre to the Curb (FTTC), and Fibre to the Premises (FTTP).
There is no set NBN connection type. The NBN is a mixed-technology, with different kinds of NBN connections, some more effective in delivering data to the home than others (see below for a description of the more common NBN connections). Unfortunately, NBN customers don’t get to choose which variety of NBN their home is allocated (this is why it has been colloquially dubbed the “NBN Lottery”), but if you are saddled with one of the less popular NBN connections, you can still improve the quality of your home broadband experience by choosing a plan that has enough data and speed to suffice your home internet needs.
If your home is already NBN active, you can search for the best NBN plans for Geelong here. If your area has not yet been upgraded to the NBN, and you’d like to know when construction will be commenced or completed, you can look up your area in the NBN Rollout Map below. This will tell you if/when the NBN will be in your region, and what sort of NBN connection you can expect to allocated. Don’t forget to type in your full address into the search bar; until the NBN is fully finished, the geographical difference between an area with NBN and an area without may be as little as one street.
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.
