The nbn™ Multi Technology Mix (MTM)

nbn is committed to providing access to fast broadband services throughout Australia. Our current plan is to take advantage of existing network infrastructure, and upgrade it to work with the rest of the rollout.

This approach means we're assessing what network technology may be available, and then using what we can to deliver a fast solution for each individual area.

nbn™ Fixed Line connections 

All types of nbn™ broadband access network connections that utilise a physical line running to the premises (FTTP, FTTN, FTTB) are considered nbn™ Fixed Line connections. The difference between each type of connection simply comes down to how we utilise existing network technology in connecting the nearest available fibre node to your specific premises.

nbn™ Fibre to the premises

nbn™ Fibre to the Premises

nbn™ Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) is the scenario where we're able to run a fibre optic line all the way to your premises.

nbn™ Fibre to the Node

nbn™ Fibre to the Node (FTTN) is where we run nbn™ Fibre to a newly built cabinet and then connect with the existing copper network.

nbn™ Fibre to the Building

nbn™ Fibre to the Building (FTTB) is generally used when we're connecting an apartment block or similar type of building to the nbn™ broadband access network.

nbn™ Hybrid Fibre Coaxial

nbn™ Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) is used in circumstances where the existing ‘pay TV’ or cable network can be used to reach your premises.

nbn™ Fixed Wireless connections and Sky Muster™ service

These types of connections are used mostly in regional and remote areas, where premises are spread out geographically over many square kilometres.

nbn™ Fixed Wireless

nbn™ Fixed Wireless

nbn™ Fixed Wireless is a form of connection where data is sent from a transmission tower and travels wirelessly to an antenna that has been fitted by an nbn™ approved installer to your roof.

Sky Muster™

The connection of some remote and rural locations services over an nbn™ powered plan can be delivered via our Sky Muster™ satellite. In this scenario a satellite dish is installed on the premises and receives the signal from the Sky Muster™ satellite.
