nbn™ FTTN – What do I need done?

The nbn™ network will eventually replace most existing phone and internet networks.

Get prepared now!

All types of nbn™ network connections that utilise a physical line running to the premises are considered fixed line connections. A nbn™ Fibre to the Node (FTTN) connection is utilised in circumstances where the existing copper network will be used to make the final part of the nbn™ network connection, from a nearby FTTN cabinet or micro-node to your premises. The fibre node is likely to take the form of a street cabinet. Each street cabinet will allow the nbn™ network signal to travel over optic fibre from the exchange to the cabinet, and connect with the existing copper network to reach your premises.

Power blackouts

Equipment connected over the nbn™ network will not work during a power blackout. Speak to us about alternative forms of power available like a small UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) to suit your needs.

Your computers are connected to your modem using an Ethernet data cable or a wireless network (Wi-Fi). It is unlikely your existing modem will work over the nbn™ network, your service provider will be able to supply or recommend a VDSL2 compatible modem.

Your phones over the nbn™ network use VoIP services and will need to be connected directly to your VDSL2 compatible modem.
