What is fixed line technology?

nbn is committed to providing access to fast broadband services throughout Australia. Our current plan is to take advantage of existing network infrastructure, and upgrade it to work with the rest of the nbn™ network rollout.

This approach means we're assessing what network technology may be available, and then using what we can to deliver a fast solution for each individual area.

nbn™ Fixed Line connections

All types of nbn™ network connections that utilise a physical line running to the premises (FTTP, FTTN, FTTB, FTTC) are considered nbn™ Fixed Line connections. The difference between each type of connection simply comes down to how we utilise existing network technology in connecting the nearest available fibre node to your specific premises.

*nbn is replacing most of the traditional landline networks for phone and internet services, including copper and the vast majority of HFC networks. Services provided over existing fibre networks (including in-building, health and education networks) and some special and business services may not be affected. To find out if your services will be affected, please contact your current phone or internet provider. For more information, visit www.nbn.com.au/switch or call 1800 687 626

 

** Your experience including the speeds actually achieved over the nbn™ network depends on the technology over which services are delivered to your premises and some factors outside our control like your equipment quality, software, broadband plans and how your service provider designs its network.
