FTTP: Fibre to the Premises
An nbn™ utility box will be installed outside your home in a spot that is accessible, usually near a power supply and in a nice dry area. The location of the connection box can directly impact the performance of your connection.
FTTN: Fibre to the Node
FTTN technology is just like what it sounds. It’s the fibre infrastructure leading into a node or cabinet that resides in your neighborhood. From there it forms a web and connects available houses using the existing copper. The FTTN roll out involves replacing a large quantity of copper running from the exchange to end-user premises. The copper that runs from the street cabinet to the home is being left in place and that is what usually speeds the connection process and making it favorable.
FTTB: Fibre to the Basement
Is essentially very similar to FTTN but instead of the node being somewhere in the neighborhood, its located in the basement of an apartment block or multi-dwelling units. Then it’s connected it to existing copper wiring of the building going to reach each apartment.
Fixed Wireless and satellite
These technologies are designed for residents and business located in the bush. We deliver broadband signals wirelessly or via satellite to these remote areas.
Cable is a broadband service that uses Hybrid Fibre Coaxial Cable. It was first implemented to deliver Cable TV to homes, but has been multi purposed as a two-way broadband network. It joins nbn™ fibre with coaxial cable to bring NBN network to homes faster.
