Types of NBN connections in WA
The NBN is a multi-technology mix; as such, there are several different NBN connection types, including Fixed Wireless, Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC), Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), Fibre to the Node (FTTN), and Fibre to the Basement (FTTB). Some NBN connections are known to be more typically efficient than others, but regrettably, customers do not get to choose what kind of NBN connection they are given, they must use the type allocated to them by the NBN Co (the government corporation that is responsible for building and operating the NBN). This unpopular practice is now referred to as the NBN Lottery. However, a lesser NBN connection can normally be countered with an NBN plan that has decent amount of data and is on a higher NBN speed tier.

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.
