HFC made easy
All types of nbn network connections that utilise a physical line running to the premises are considered Fixed Line connections.
An Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) connection is used in circumstances where the existing ‘pay TV’ or cable network can be used to make the final part of the nbn network connection. In this circumstance an HFC line will be run from the nearest available fibre node, to your premises.
HFC connections require an nbn network device to be installed at the point where the line enters your home. This device requires power to operate.
There are two ways HFC can be installed at your premises – through an nbn approved installer or if eligible, through self-installation.
When you contact your phone and internet provider to connect to the nbn network, they will confirm which installation process applies to your premises.
Installation with an nbn approved installer
