nbn™ FTTB 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 Building (FTTB) connection is generally used when we are connecting an apartment block or similar types of buildings to the nbn™ access network. In this scenario we run a fibre optic line to the fibre node in the building’s communications room, and then we use the existing technology in the building to connect to each apartment.
The fibre node is likely to take the form of a secure cabinet in your building’s communications room. Each cabinet will allow the nbn™ access network signal to travel over a fibre optic line, to the existing network technology present in the building.
Setting up your equipment
To prepare for your new nbn™ powered plan, set up your VDSL2 compatible modem using the instructions given by your provider – this modem should have been supplied by your provider. If you already have a modem, it must be VDSL2 compatible for it to work over the nbn™ access network.
