HFC (Hybrid Fibre Coaxial) – The HFC Network formerly belonged to Telstra/Foxtel/Optus but is now owned by the NBN Company.

They were designed to carry PAY-TV (cable-tv) and developed by the cable TV industry to allow two-way, high-speed broadband content (video, voice and data) to be delivered to the using a combination of fibre and coaxial cable.

If you live in a HFC area, your NBN solution will be deliver via this technology instead of FTTP or FTTN

Hybrid fibre/coaxial (“cable Internet”) currently delivers speeds of 30 to 100Mbps. The NBN company plan acknowledges that 240Mbps is possible on the current network with HFC node-splitting.

HFC is widespread across a number of areas of metropolitan – if you or your neighbour has Foxtel via cable there is a good chance you live in the HFC footprint. Rather than build another broadband network over the top of these existing HFC networks, NBN plan to upgrade the networks to deliver high speed broadband.

The purpose of this approach is to enable families and businesses to access high speed broadband faster than previously anticipated, with less disruption to the community and at less cost to you the tax payer.


NBN over HFC delayed until Q3/Q4 2018
