What is the NBN and how does it work?

The National Broadband Network (NBN) is a government initiative to deliver high speed broadband access to the majority of the Australian population. The exact technologies used to roll out that broadband has changed a couple of times as the government's vision has changed.

Now, the NBN will be delivered by a mix of technologies, including satellite and fixed wireless in remote areas, as well as Fibre To The Premises (FTTP), Fibre To The Node (FTTN), as well as HFC Cable broadband connections. The network also includes a couple of other fibre technologies as well – Fibre To The Basement (FTTB) and Fibre to the Distribution Point (FTTdp). These latter technologies are fairly uncommon at this stage with FTTB only applicable in certain apartment buildings, while FTTdp will be used to serve areas that were originally going to be catered to by the Optus HFC cable.

As you might imagine, there are significant differences between these different NBN technologies. For a full break down of what each technology offers a customer, read our NBN technology comparison. The reality is that in most cases, your physical address will dictate the NBN technology you get, so to find out which NBN technology will be available at your address, our NBN rollout region list can help you understand how the rollout is progressing.

If you're looking to switch your broadband to an NBN connection, this NBN upgrade guide will help you through the process. You can also get more information about Satellite NBNFTTP NBN and FTTN NBN.

How fast will my NBN plan be?

The speed of an NBN connection depends on two primary factors. Firstly, there’s the connection type, which will very much determine the maximum available speeds. Because FTTP delivers fibre all the way to your house, it's going to be faster than FTTN, which uses slower copper wires to connect the last 400 metres or so to your home.

The NBN is also different to other broadband technologies in that providers offer plans in different speed tiers. So for example if you’re in a full fibre FTTP area, consumer plans vary from entry-level 12/1Mbps plans all the way up to 100/50Mbps plans depending on your needs and how much money you want to spend. There's also the potential for faster plans later down the track.

These speed options downgrade for FTTN and HFC Cable NBN connections, and even more so for fixed wireless and satellite customers.

Where is NBN broadband available?

The rollout of the NBN is constantly evolving and rapidly expanding every day. If you want to find out where the network is currently available, or want to discover when the rollout will happen at your address, head straight for our NBN rollout map.

The NBN is currently scheduled to be completed by 2020, although the NBN project does have a long history of delays. When finished, the network is expected to provide the entire Australian population with broadband technologies across Australia’s residential and business addresses.

How can I compare NBN broadband plans?

The key thing for any NBN plan is to realise that you won’t have the option to compare, say, FTTN and FTTP plans, because only one option will be open to you.

That's where our comparison engine comes in. Simply enter your address in the field above the comparison table, and we'll tell you what plans are available based on the technologies that are available at that address. If the NBN isn't available at your address yet, you can sign up to be notified when the NBN is switched on.
