Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) is a type of nbn™ technology. This type of nbn™ connection uses the existing ‘pay TV’ or cable network to make the final part of the nbn network connection. In this circumstance, an HFC line will be run from the nearest available fibre node to your home.
nbn™ HFC connections require an nbn™ network device (HFC modem) to be installed at the point where the HFC line enters your home. If you do not have an HFC nbn™ network device already, this may be provided when you sign-up and an order is placed to connect nbn™.
To connect to the internet on an HFC connection, you will require a compatible router with a WAN port that will plug into the nbn™ HFC network device. You can use an existing router/modem (BYO), or you can purchase a modem/router from us.More information about nbn™ Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) can be found on the nbn™ website.
