what is nbn Fibre to the Node (FTTN)?

Fibre to the Node (FTTN) 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 from a nearby FTTN cabinet (node) or micro-node.

The fibre node is likely to take the form of a street cabinet. Each street cabinet will allow the nbn™ network signal to travel over optic fibre from the exchange to the cabinet, and connect with the existing copper telephone network to reach your home.

If you have FTTN 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 Node (FTTN) can be found on the nbn™ website.
