Fibre to the Building (FTTB), also known as Fibre to the Basement, is a type of nbn™ technology. This type of nbn™ connection uses the existing copper telephone network to make the final part of your nbn™ connection and is generally used when connecting an apartment or unit block.
For an FTTB connection, nbn™ will run a fibre optic cable to the Main Distribution Frame (MDF) in the building’s communications room, and then uses the existing copper phone line technology in the building to connect to each apartment or unit.
If you have FTTB at your address, you will not have a connection box inside like some other nbn™ technologies. Instead, to connect to the internet you will require a VDSL compatible modem that will plug into a traditional telephone wall socket in your home. You can use an existing VDSL modem (BYO), or you can purchase a modem from us.More information about nbn™ Fibre to the Building (FTTB) can be found on the nbn™ website.
