nbn™ rollout map – when will the nbn be ready in my area?

Use the nbn rollout map by entering your address in the search bar or drag and drop the pin to discover whether your address is nbn-ready and find out the technology that will be used to service your home. For most people, nbn will replace your current ADSL2 or cable connection.

The technology used to connect to the nbn varies based on your address and utilises a mix of new broadband network technology along with existing network infrastructure. The nbn rollout is expected to be complete by 2020, delivering superfast broadband speeds to 8 million homes and businesses.

If your address is not ready, you’ll be given a planned completion date as well as the nbn™ technology that will be used to service your home.

nbn technologies explained

There are many different types of nbn network technologies. The difference between each of them comes down to how the nbn utilises existing network technology in order to connect households to the nearest fibre node.

Fibre to the premises - FTTP

Fibre to the Premises (FTTP)

Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) technology is where a fibre optic cable runs from your street to an nbn utility box installed on the outside of your premises. A fibre optic cable from the utility box is then connected to an nbn connection box installed inside your home.

Fibre to the node - FTTN

Fibre to the Node (FTTN)

Fibre to the Node (FTTN) technology is where a fibre line is run to a newly built cabinet (referred to as a node) in a nearby street which is then connected to a wall socket in your home using existing copper phone and internet wiring.

Hybrid fibre coaxial - HFC

Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC)

Hybrid Fibre Coaxial is where a fibre leads to a cabinet (referred to as a node) near your home. Existing ‘pay TV’ coaxial cabling is then used to connect the node to your premises which leads to a wall socket inside your home.

Fibre to the building - FTTB

Fibre to the Building (FTTB)

This connection is most common for people living in an apartment, particularly in high-rise buildings. It uses the existing infrastructure in the building to connect to the nbn’s fibre optic cables.

Fibre to the curb - FTTC

Fibre to the Curb (FTTC)

FTTC involves a high speed fibre optic cable being run from a newly built cabinet (called a node) to a Distribution Point Unit under your property's kerb or driveway. The final connection from this Distribution Point is then made to your home using your existing copper phone line.

answers at your fingertips

What is the nbn?

Quick answer

There’s a growing need in Australia for a high-speed broadband network to meet our demands for fast and reliable internet access.

The National Broadband Network (nbn for short) is an upgrade to Australia’s existing broadband network designed specifically for the high-speed transfer of internet traffic.

As the national rollout of the nbn speeds up, many parts of Australia’s existing broadband network will be switched off to make way for the new one. To make the most of the superfast speeds of the nbn, you’ll have to switch to a nbn-ready plan before the old internet is switched off in your area.

Will the nbn actually make my internet faster?

Quick answer

In most cases, the nbn will provide faster speeds than existing broadband networks in Australia (#winning!).

If you’re currently using a cable broadband service, the speed of your amaysim nbn plan may be similar to what you’re already getting, but since nbn technology relies less on your home’s proximity to an exchange to deliver fast internet, you should enjoy a speedier and more reliable internet connection

When will I get nbn at my house?

The nbn is already available at over 4 million households nationwide. With 20,000 new activations each week, the rollout should be complete by 2020.
