Quick answer: 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.
FTTP connections require an nbn™ access network device to be installed inside your home. This device requires power to operate and can only be installed by an NBN Co installer.
Setting up your equipment
FTTP installation requests may require in-home cabling and include multiple devices to be installed inside and outside of your premises. The nbn™ equipment to be installed may include an nbn™ utility box (outside), an nbn™ connection box (inside or outside), and a Power Supply unit (inside).
Once the nbn™ equipment is installed, simply connect your nbn™ compatible modem to the UNI-D port (1-4) specified by us. If you have purchased a modem from Australia Broadband, it will compatible with all nbn™ technology types (including FTTP) and will be pre-configured with our Australia Broadband internet settings.
If you are using a BYO modem, it must be nbn™ compatible for it to work over the nbn™ access network. Visit Can I bring my own modem with Australia Broadband? for more information.
