nbn™ Fibre to the Curb (FTTC)

nbn™ Fibre to the Curb explained Fibre to the Curb is a new access technology that will form part of the nbn™ broadband access network rollout to provide access to broadband services to Australian homes and businesses.

An nbn™ FTTC connection is used in circumstances where fibre is extended close to your premises, connecting to a small Distribution Point Unit (DPU), generally located inside a pit on the street.

From here, the existing copper network is connected to the fibre to form the final nbn™ connection. To power your FTTC service with electricity and provide your connection to the nbn™ broadband access network, an FTTC nbn™ connection device will be required inside your home or business.

In some cases, you may be eligible to perform self-installation of the nbn™ connection device.

FTTC is planned to be available from early 2018. Check your address to see when the nbn™ broadband access network is being rolled out in your area.
