All types of nbn® network connections that utilise a physical line running to the premises are considered Fixed Line connections. An nbn® Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) connection is used in circumstances where a fibre optic line will be run from the nearest available fibre node, directly to your premises.
nbn® is continuing to evolve its network to meet the ever-changing needs of Australians.
Through the Fibre Connect program, nbn® is rolling out its fibre technology deeper into selected towns and suburbs, allowing more Australians to access faster and more reliable internet. By the end of 2023, up to 75% of homes and businesses across the country will be able to access high-speed internet thanks to the network upgrades.
Many new locations can now upgrade their to upgrade their internet to nbn® Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) connections, and eligible addresses will qualify for $0 installation costs.*

Future-Proof Your Home
FTTP allows you to run high-bandwidth technology effectively and the option to dial up speeds as you need it. While your home may not require faster speeds just yet, as technology becomes more intertwined in everyday life, you can rest assured you’re ready.
More Reliable Technology
FTTP is more reliable than copper connections such as Fibre to the Node (FTTN) and Fibre to the Curb (FTTC), and offers higher bandwidth, meaning less lag when you're trying to stream your favourite show.

The Fibre Connect initiative from nbn® aims improve internet connectivity across Australia by rolling out high-speed fibre optic broadband technology. The program aims to connect more homes and businesses to the National Broadband Network (nbn®) using fibre optic cables, which can deliver faster and more reliable internet speeds compared to traditional copper-based networks.
Under the Fibre Connect program, nbn® will install fibre optic cables directly to homes and businesses in certain areas, replacing the existing copper-based network infrastructure. This will provide faster internet speeds and more consistent performance, particularly for data-intensive applications such as streaming video, online gaming, and video conferencing.
The Fibre Connect program is being rolled out gradually across the country, with priority given to areas where there is a high demand for faster internet speeds and where the existing network infrastructure is outdated or unable to meet the needs of users. Other factors include:
- Demand – Metropolitan and regional locations where nbn anticipates strong demand for higher wholesale speed plans.
- Workforce – nbn’s established construction and delivery partners, and their respective workforces, are ready to work here having recently completed our network’s initial build.
- Cost-effectiveness – nbn can deploy here with speed and agility, in a way that their investment is most likely to spread and multiply economic activity across the nation.
nbn’s overall aim is to extend fibre to an additional 3.5 million homes and businesses by the end of 2023.
Eligible customers will need to place an order through Field Solutions to upgrade to FTTP.
Our team will help you select one of our high-speed plans to upgrade to, and then if you stay with that plan (or a higher plan) for 12 months, the installation upgrade is completely free.
If your premises is not eligible for upgrade right now, it may become eligible before the end of 2023. You can register with nbn for email updates and you will be advised if your premises becomes eligible.
nbn’s role is to improve and upgrade the nbn network as Australia’s connectivity needs increase and to ensure that they provide access to the broadband speeds that Australia needs. This will see more and more areas become connected to FTTP technology.
The nbn approved technician will install Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) connection in parallel to your existing Fibre to the Node (FTTN) or Fibre to the Curb (FTTC) connection.
Once we are 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.
Our team will help you through the process of cancelling your original technology (FTTN or FTTC) so that you can avoid being charged for services on both technologies.
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.
