NBN – What to do?


The NBN machine is rolling through.

Some suburbs have been cutover to the NBN for several years (Aspley, Banyo), and some suburbs are in the process of cutover.

Caboolture, Strathpine, Brendale, Lawnton and Warner are having FTTN (Fibre To The Node) cabinets installed and customers are starting to migrate their services over to the NBN.

Redcliffe was chosen as a trial site for HFC (Hybrid Fibre Co-Axial) method of NBN delivery, and this uses existing the Foxtel Co-Axial cable and outlets for modem connection.

The HFC method looks to be the new preferred method of NBN delivery, as NBNCo has acquired the co-axial cable network of both Telstra (Foxtel) and Optus.

(Did someone say “monopoly”?)

This all means that the delivery of your dial tone and internet will change.

Residential users with a single telephone service and internet will most likely just have a change of modem, with the telephone connected via the modem.

Business users with multiple telephone lines will be faced with difficult, and possibly costly, decisions.
