Types of NBN connections in VIC
The NBN (or National Broadband Network) is a massive government enterprise that’s levelling up our national broadband infrastructure by replacing all the old inferior copper line networks with generally more efficient fibre optic cables. Once an area is made NBN ready, the copper lines in the area are discontinued. You can compare NBN plans in Victoria here.
The types of NBN connections commonly found in Victoria include Fixed Wireless Connection, FTTB (Fibre to the Basement), Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), Hybrid Fiber-Coaxial Cable (HFC), Fibre to the Curb (FTTC) and Fibre to the Node (FFTN).
To see if/when your home is NBN active, and to find out what kind of NBN connection your area has been allocated, put your address into our rollout map below. For more accurate results, make sure you enter your full address, because until the NBN rollout is completed, the distinction between a region that’s NBN active and one that isn’t may be as slight 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.
