Telephone and Internet Connections offered by NBN

NBN (National Broadband Network) Telephone and Internet Services

Every Australian residence and business should be able to access Telephone and Data (Internet) services using one of the following NBN technologies depending on your location. To find out what is available at your location, enter your address into the following web page: https://www.nbnco.com.au/

Existing telephone handsets cannot be used in any of the NBN technologies. If you still require a traditional telephone “handset”, you will need to purchase an NBN compatible handsets that plugs into the NBN modem.

If you DO NOT need a telephone handset, consider the following non-NBN alternatives:

Technologies offered by the NBN are as follows

  • Fibre to the Premises (FTTP)
  • Fibre to the Building/Node (FTTB & FTTN)
  • Fibre to the Curb (FTTC)
  • NBN™ Wireless
  • NBN™ HFC
  • NBN™ Satellite

Fibre to the Premises (FTTP)

FTTP – The best solution with Fibre directly to your premises. Sadly only a very small percentage of Australian users have this type of connection as it was deemed to expensive and time consuming to rollout across the country. Some users can apply to have their technology upgraded to FTTP but the cost is around $7 to $10,000.

Fibre to the Building/Node (FTTB & FTTN)

Most Australian residences will be connected directly to the existing telephone socket, using a new NBN compatible modem. This technology uses the existing copper telephone lines in a building, building complex or in the street which can be up to 1klm from your location. Some users can apply to have their technology upgraded to FTTP but the cost is around $7 to $10,000.

Fibre to the Curb (FTTC)

Fibre to the curb is an improvement on the FTTN solution. It still uses the existing copper telephone lines but then connects to a “Node” or NBN junction-box in within a few hundred meters of your building. Some users can apply to have their technology upgraded to FTTP but the cost is around $7 to $10,000.

NBN™ HFC

NBN™ Wireless and NBN™ Satellite
