Most popular questions

Customers on Fibre to the Node (FTTN) or Fibre to the Curb (FTTC) technologies in selected areas may be eligible to upgrade to Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) with a plan based on our eligible higher wholesale speed tiers^.

The eligible locations have been selected for reasons including:

  • Demand – we anticipate strong demand in these metropolitan and regional locations for higher wholesale speed plans.
  • Workforce – our established construction and delivery partners, and their respective workforces, are ready to work here having recently completed our network’s initial build.+
  • Cost-effectiveness – we can deploy here with speed and agility, in a way that our investment is most likely to spread and multiply economic activity across the nation.

Our aim is to extend fibre to an additional 5 million homes and businesses by the end of 2025.

It’s important to note that not every premises in the towns and suburbs listed will be eligible, so seeing your location listed above is not a guarantee that you will be able to upgrade to our higher speed tiers as part of these releases.

We’ll keep you updated on our progress to evolve the nbn network so check back regularly for the latest news, or register for updates.

The technician will install the Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) connection in parallel to your existing Fibre to the Node (FTTN) or Fibre to the Curb (FTTC) connection.

Once you have spoken to your FTTP provider and are satisfied that your FTTP service is up and running, you may need to arrange the transfer of services from your original technology (FTTN or FTTC) connection to your new FTTP connection.

We recommend checking with your original provider that your plan on the original technology (FTTN or FTTC) has been cancelled, so that you can avoid being charged for services on both technologies. Your provider will be able to help you through this process.

Unless you have cancelled your original service, it will remain active for 12 months after the connection of your new FTTP service, after which it will be disconnected.

Eligible customers will have to place an order with a participating phone and internet provider and purchase a plan based on our eligible higher wholesale speed tiers^ to upgrade to FTTP.

Depending on factors such as complexity and your building type, additional costs may apply to providers, who may choose to pass this charge onto their customers. We recommend speaking to a participating provider to find out about costs to you.
