Types of Internet connections in Melbourne CBD

Are you living or working in the glamorous hustle and bustle that’s the Melbourne central business district? If so, it’s highly likely that you’re going to need a good broadband plan that can keep up that lively inner city lifestyle! When it comes to Australian internet infrastructure, it can be a bit of a labyrinthe out there, and the best internet connection type for you is invariably going to be informed by your specific address. Internet connection types around the Melbourne city centre can be pretty varied; there are multiple connections found around the CBD, including Cable, Naked DSL, Home Wireless, Home Wi-Fi Plans, 5G, ADSL2+, and of course, the NBN. And then on top of that, there are multiple NBN connection types (see below). Not to mention all the free Wi-Fi spots in the Melbourne CBD, though it’s probably not advised you do that for extended periods, if only because using free Wi-Fi hotspots can be a bit of a security risk

Once you’d determined what internet connection type best suits your specific city location, you’re on your way to finding a broadband plan that also matches your internet requirements and your budget. Whether you want an unlimited plan, a plan that’s a little cheaper, or something that’s a bit of both, the right deal will be out there for you - you just have to find it. And we’re here to help! Here at Compare Broadband we make it our mission to connect customers to their ideal internet plan as quickly and as effortlessly as possible; and our services are absolutely free for everyone in Australia!

Types of NBN connections in Melbourne CBD

The NBN (or National Broadband Network) is an Australian-wide enterprise that was designed and rolled out by the Australian Government to upgrade the country’s internet infrastructure. This is done by replacing Australia’s old internet infrastructure - the copper line network that was built for our old landline telephone lines - with a generally more reliable fibre optic cable network. The NBN rollout in the Melbourne CBD is largely completed, and NBN Melbourne service is widely available in many areas of the Melbourne central business district as well its surrounding areas. If you already have active Melbourne NBN service, you can compare the best NBN plans in Melbourne here. If you’re not sure if your home or office has been given an NBN upgrade yet, you can find out by scrolling down the page and entering your address into our NBN rollout map below. 

Because the NBN is a Multi Technology Mix (or MTM for short), there are several different kinds of NBN connection types found around the Melbourne city centre, including FTTN (Fibre to the Node), Fixed Wireless, HFC (Hybrid Fibre-Coaxial), FTTB (Fibre to the Basement), and FTTP (Fibre to the Premises). Some NBN connection types don’t work as well as others, but you don’t get to choose what one you get because of the NBN Lottery. However, you do get to choose what NBN plan you get, which includes your NBN speed tier, NBN data amount, and which Internet Service Provider (or ISP for short) you choose to sign with. You can compare the best NBN providers in Melbourne here, or call us on 1300 106 571 for a free NBN broadband consultation.

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.
