The National Broadband Network (NBN) is now being rolled out in Australia.

Depending on where you live the default installation can be one of the following:

  • FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) — the best
  • FTTB (Fibre to the Basement) — for apartment buildings
  • FTTC (Fibre to the Curb)
  • HFC (Hybrid Fibre Coaxial)
  • FW (Fixed Wireless) — mostly for regional areas
  • Sat (Satellite/ SkyMuster) — mostly for remote areas

Not all areas will receive the NBN, some are being declared as “adequately served” by other providers.

Alternative options in some areas also include FTTB and Wireless networks, as well as mobile. Existing areas also have ADSL/ADSL2+ which will be replaced by the NBN.
