NBN – National Broadband Network Australia – Who, Why, When, How, all explained.

JBTECH-NBN-LOGOThree types of NBN explained 

  1. The Australian Government is rolling out an NBN fibre optic network to the node for most of Australia.
    This technology requires upgrades to the local exchange, fibre optics installed in the ground from the exchange to the node, and a new node to be installed in the street.
    Cabling from the node to the building will remain as the standard copper phone lines, and a new modem is supplied to the customer.
  2. In some metropolitan areas NBN HFC technology will be rolled out, this is an upgrade to the current cable internet system (running on the Pay TV network, not the phone network).
    This technology requires upgrades at the local exchange and a new modem to be supplied to those customers that are already on cable internet.
    For those not on cable internet they will require connection from the street to their building.
  3. The remainder of Australia will be covered with either NBN Fixed Wireless or NBN Satellite solutions.
    – Fixed Wireless – This technology requires upgrades at the local exchange and  it will require towers similar to 4G mobile phone towers and a new modem to be supplied to the customer.
    – Satellite – This will be uncommon, however it will be rolled out in areas too remote for towers to be installed.


Speed on NBN will be effected by the distance between your modem and the node/exchange depending on which technology is being rolled out in your area.

Speeds on NBN will vary from technology to technology, however please refer to your ISP’s website for advertised speeds and available connection information.
