nbn™ Fixed Line
What is an nbn™ fixed line connection (aka fibre) ?
Fixed line connections usually offer the best reliability and performance, but there are may types of fixed-line connections often referred to as nbn™ Fibre which may be available depending on where you live.
All types of nbn™ access network connections that utilise a physical line running to the premises (FTTP, FTTB, HFC, FTTC and FTTN) are considered Fixed Line connections.
Benefits of nbn™ Fixed Line Connections
Fixed Line connections will typically offer the best download speeds randing from from 12mb/s to more than 1,000mb/s (1gb) and can also offer "symmetrical" i.e. same speed for downloads and uploads ideal for business.
No Contract or long-term commitments
Commitment Phobic ? We offer short-term (12 month) contracts. There are some great benefits to longer term agreements though, such as free installation and routers.
Standard installations are always free and there are no setup fees.
There are no limits to how much data you can consume as long as you stay within the nbn's fair use policy.

The difference between each type of connection simply comes down to how the nbn™ utilise existing network technology in connecting the nearest available fibre node to a specific premises.
An nbn™ Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) connection is used in circumstances where a fibre optic line will be run from the nearest available fibre node, directly to your premises.
FTTP connections require an nbn™ access network device to be installed inside your home such as an nbn™ utility box (outside), an nbn™ connection box (inside or outside), and a Power Supply unit (inside).
An nbn™ Fibre to the Node (FTTN) connection is utilised where the existing copper phone and internet network from a nearby fibre node is used to make the final part of the connection to the nbn™ access network.
The fibre node is likely to take the form of a street cabinet. Each street cabinet will allow the nbn™ access network signal to travel over a fibre optic line from the exchange, to the cabinet, and connect with the existing copper network to reach your premises.
An nbn™ FTTC connection is used in circumstances where fibre is extended close to your premises, connecting to a small Distribution Point Unit (DPU), generally located inside a pit on the street. From here, the existing copper network is connected to the fibre to form the final nbn™ connection. To power your FTTC service with electricity and provide your connection to the nbn™ broadband access network, an FTTC nbn™ connection box will be required inside your home or business. In some cases, you may be eligible to perform self-installation of the nbn™ connection box.
An nbn™ Fibre to the Building (FTTB) connection is generally used when we are connecting an apartment block or similar types of buildings to the nbn™ access network. In this scenario we run a fibre optic line to the fibre node in the building’s communications room, and then we use the existing technology in the building to connect to each apartment.
The fibre node is likely to take the form of a secure cabinet in your building’s communications room. Each cabinet will allow the nbn™ access network signal to travel over a fibre optic line, to the existing network technology present in the building.
