nbn™ FTTN made easy
All types of nbn™ broadband access network connections that utilise a physical line running to the premises are considered Fixed Line connections. An nbn™ Fibre to the Node (FTTN) connection is utilised where the existing copper phone and internet network from a nearby fibre node is used to make the final part of the connection to the nbn™ access network.
The fibre node is likely to take the form of a street cabinet. Each street cabinet will allow the nbn™ access network signal to travel over a fibre optic line from the exchange, to the cabinet, and connect with the existing copper network to reach your premises.
What to expect on the day of your nbn™ Fibre to the Node installation
Setting up your equipment
To prepare for your new nbn™ powered plan, simply set up your VDSL2 compatible modem (that should have been supplied by your internet/phone provider) using the instructions given by your provider. If you already have a modem, it must be VDSL2 compatible for it to work over the nbn™ access network.
