Types of NBN connections in Mernda

The NBN in Mernda is already largely completed; though there are still a few areas where construction is still underway, these areas are expected to be completed soon, and the NBN Co have announced that rollout around the entire country should be completed no later than 2020. The NBN is a mixed-technology, with different speeds and connection types.

Some of the different types of NBN connections commonly found in Mernda include Fixed Wireless, Fibre to the Node (FTTN), Fibre to the Curb (FTTC), Hybrid Fiber-Coaxial (HFC), and Fibre to the Premises (FTTP). Some NBN connections are known to be more reliable than others, but unfortunately, you don’t get to choose what connection you are given; the NBN Co allocates different NBN connections to different regions, so it’s very much luck of the draw. This something that has been derisively referred to as the NBN Lottery. However, if you are experiencing lacklustre internet due to your NBN connection, you can typically counter this by opting for an NBN plan with more data and a higher speed tier. You should also immediately call your internet service provider (ISP) if you are having difficulties with your broadband service, as your ISP will be able run some tests to determine whether the problem is due to infrastructure or something more easily solvable, such as a loosed cable. 

In areas where the NBN is not yet active, you may find that ADSL2+ is the most viable option for home broadband; however, it’s valuable to remember that once the NBN is eventually ready in those areas, then that all ADSL2+ connections will be permanently disconnected in that area, and all ADSL technologies will be completely phased out once the NBN rollout is 100% complete. To find out if your home is NBN ready, enter your address into our NBN rollout map below. Be sure to enter your full address, as the difference between zones that are NBN-ready and zones that are not can sometimes be as slight as one street. Our map will tell you if your home is NBN-active, and if it is not, when you can expect that to change. The map will also tell you what NBN connection type has been designated to your street. If and when your home is NBN-ready, you can find the best NBN deal for your home by comparing NBN plans and providers here.

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.
