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
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.
