When is the NBN coming to my area?

Advertisement

The NBN is fast being rolled out across the country. While a number of suburbs already have the service, you’re probably curious to know when YOUR area is getting NBN if it hasn’t already. We’ll break it down by state and then by postcode to see when your area is scheduled to get NBN. Click below to see what’s going on in your state and which type of NBN connection your suburb is going to get.

Types of NBN Connection

There are three main types of NBN connection – fixed-line, fixed wireless and SkyMuster satellite. The following report focuses on fixed line connections, which are further broken down into a three categories:

  • FTTN – ‘Fibre to the Node’: Is the most common type of NBN connection, using fibre cables to a node in a local area, and the existing copper phone line connection from the node to the home.
  • FTTC – ‘Fibre to the Curb’: Or ‘Kerb’ if you’re a stickler for grammar. This uses a fibre connection literally to the kerb of nearby homes, and copper home lines are then used from the kerb to the home.
  • FTTP – ‘Fibre to the Premises’: This ditches the copper line entirely and brings fibre cables right up to your front door. Fewer suburbs have this type of connection, but it affords the fastest and most reliable speeds – usually.

Out of the three connections, FTTN is the most widely rolled-out, but FTTC and FTTP largely provide greater bandwidth capacity and faster speeds.

What do I do when NBN comes to my suburb?

If your current provider also offers NBN, you may not have to do anything! Your provider may have an ‘NBN ready’ plan pack, with free NBN transition and shutting down of your old ADSL connection. Plan prices may not change, but you may have to spend more to get a better speed. Some other tips are:

In any case, it never hurts to reconsider your options. The NBN rolling out may be a good time to review the provider you are with and whether they are really fulfilling your needs. Aside from contracts, it may not hurt to switch! The NBN is not without its bumps in the road, but it should still be an exciting time if you’re about to be connected.
