Types of NBN connections in Mickleham
The NBN stands for National Broadband Network. It is a massive operation run by the Australian Government, and it was designed and implemented with the objective of improving our country’s internet infrastructure by taking the old copper line networks (that are also used to run our old telephone lines) and upgrade them toa typically superior fibre optic cable system. The operation has faced many delays, largely due to bureaucratic interference and funding cuts, but it appears to be on track now. The NBN in Mickleham is predominantly completed, with only a few remaining areas where NBN build is still under construction. However, these remaining swaths should have their NBN upgrades finished soon, as the NBN Co (the appropriately named corporation in charge of maintaining the NBN) have cited that the NBN Australian rollout should be finally fully completed nationwide sometime towards the end of 2020. The NBN is a mix technology - as such as, there are different types of NBN connections that are made up of different technologies. Some are known to work more efficiently than others, whereas others have been noted to give more of a lagging broadband performance. Regrettably, as NBN customers, we don’t get to choose what type of NBN connection is installed in our home; this is a decision that’s made by the NBN Co based on where you live, a practice now scornfully referred to as the NBN Lottery.
The different kinds of NBN connections found in Mickleham include Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), Fibre to the Basement (FTTB), Fixed Wireless, Hybrid Fibre-Coaxial (HFC), and Fibre to the Node (FTTN).

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.
