nbn™ HFC made easy
All types of nbn™ network connections that utilise a physical line running to the premises are considered Fixed Line connections.
An nbn™ Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) connection is used in circumstances where the existing ‘pay TV’ or cable network can be used to make the final part of the nbn™ access network connection. In this circumstance an HFC line will be run from the nearest available fibre node, to your premises.
HFC connections require an nbn™ access network device to be installed at the point where the line enters your home. This device requires power to operate and can only be installed by an nbn™ approved installer.
When you contact your phone and internet provider to connect to the nbn™ network, they should arrange for an nbn™ approved installer to call you and organise a visit to your premises to connect you.
