Uniti can utilise a number of technologies, dependant on what is available in your location, to the NBN;
Fibre to the Premise or FTTP: nbn co runs fibre directly to a customer’s home. nbn co needs to install an nbn utility box (outside your home) and an nbn connection box (inside your home) to allow you to connect to the nbn network. We'll let you know if you need an appointment when you sign up.
Fibre to the Basement/Building or FTTB: Fibre is run to a multi-dwelling unit or apartment building, with existing internal copper wiring within the building used to connect a VDSL service (Very-High-Bit-Rate DSL). Customers connect via their modem to the existing telecommunications socket.
Fibre to the Node or FTTN: Fibre optic cables are run from the telephone exchange to a street node or pillar, then the existing telecommunications copper lines are used to deliver broadband to the home. You connect via your modem to the existing telecommunications socket.
HFC or Hybrid Fibre Coaxial: nbn co uses the existing HFC networks used for cable internet and Pay TV. Depending on your situation, nbn co may need to install an nbn utility box outside your house. nbn co will install an nbn connection box inside your house near a HFC wall-plate or socket.
Fibre to the Curb FTTC: Fibre is run close to your home, connecting to a Distribution Point Unit (DPU), located on the street. From here, the existing copper network is connected to the fibre to form the nbn connection. To power your FTTC service with electricity and provide your connection to the nbn broadband access network, you will also need a network connection device (NCD), which Uniti will send you.
