Get fast, reliable internet by upgrading from copper to fibre today!
With video conferencing, data-hungry apps and large file transfers now the norm, businesses need their internet service to be fast and reliable. Understanding that the digital needs of your business are constantly changing, nbn® has launched the Fibre Connect Program. This FREE* fibre upgrade program will ensure your internet service continues to meet your needs now and into the future.
What is the Fibre Connect Program?
The Fibre Connect program is an nbn® initiative that upgrades eligible customers to a Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) connection with no installation costs. The goal of the program is to improve internet speeds and reliability for Australians. The fibre upgrade program is funded by nbn® and the Australian Government, saving eligible customers thousands of dollars on installation costs.
What is a fibre upgrade?
A fibre upgrade involves upgrading your internet connection to a Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) connection. FTTP is a connection that is fibre from the nearest fibre node right up to the nbn® box attached to your premises, so you have a full-fibre connection.
With fibre to the curb (FTTC) or fibre to the node (FTTN) connections, fibre stops at either the curb (the pit in the street out the front of your premises) or the nearest fibre node. The connection from the curb or the node to your premises is through a copper line.
Copper lines are less reliable and durable than fibre optic cables. As a result, it’s more susceptible to weather conditions and degradation due to age and wear and tear.
Another limitation of copper is that it’s unable to provide the same bandwidth or speeds as fibre. Copper carries data as electricity, not light like fibre optic cable. Light travels much faster than electricity which means faster speeds can be achieved with an FTTP connection.
By upgrading to FTTP, you’re eliminating the copper line, which instantly improves the reliability of your business internet service. You can supercharge your speed by selecting a plan of 100Mbps+ (FTTN) or 250Mbps+ (FTTC).
