What type of nbn do you need?

Internet connections come in many types. At Leaptel, we’ve got every option covered. Whether it’s fibre or wireless that’s best for you, the perfect solution awaits.

nbn Fibre to the Premises (FTTP)

nbn Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) refers to a fibre-optic cable running from the nbn exchange directly to your home.

nbn Fibre to the Node (FTTN)

nbn Fibre to the Node (FTTN) refers to a fibre-optic cable running to a node in the street. From there, existing copper phone line is used to connect the house. Although FTTN uses similar technology to ADSL, far higher speeds can be achieved due to the shorter distance of copper line.

nbn Fibre to the Basement (FTTB)

nbn Fibre to the Basement (FTTB) refers to a fibre-optic cable running to a node in the building’s basement. Existing copper phone lines then deliver nbn to each unit in the building.

nbn Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC)

nbn HFC refers to the existing cable television network originally operated by Telstra, which was purchased by nbn. Currently capable of offering speeds up to 100Mbps, nbn has outlined an upgrade process to increase speeds to 1 Gigabit per second (1000Mbps) over the coming years.

nbn Fibre to the Curb (FTTC)

nbn Fibre to the Curb (FTTC) is NBN’s newest technology type, providing higher speeds and greater reliability than Fibre to the Node (FTTN). Fibre optic cable is run from the nbn exchange to an existing pit outside a small number of houses. From there, FTTC uses copper line (approximately 100m) to deliver nbn into adjacent houses.

nbn Satellite

nbn Satellite is used in regional areas or in locations where nbn is unable to reach with other technology types. Leaptel is currently unable to deliver services to customers covered by this technology type.

nbn Fixed Wireless

nbn Fixed Wireless uses mobile towers (like the 4G mobile network) to deliver nbn. If your house is covered by this technology type, nbn will install a small antenna on your roof. A box will be installed in your house to connect your router.
