Picking the best NBN supplier and best NBN plan could be overwhelming and costly if not picked carefully. NBN is the Federal Government project that began in 2007 and will be finished in 2021. There is a great deal to think about NBN and a few communities have differing sentiments about how the different governments have changed the technology during the life of the project. It began as FTTP (Fibre to the Premises), changed to FTTN/FTTB (fibre to the Node/fibre to the Basement), Optus cable regions with HFC (Hybrid fibre Cable), and then to FTTC (fibre to the Curb). Satellites used in remote areas where fibre is uneconomical....

National Broadband Network (NBN) is a multiple technology Federal Government initiative to connect high speed internet to 93% of Australian homes. The project commenced in 2011 in Tasmania and is due to be completed in 2021. The technology that was initially used was Fibre to the premises (FTTP). This appeared to be very time consuming as a lot of approvals were required before digging the ground to lay the fibre to the premises. The technology was quickly changed to FTTN/FTTB (Fibre to the Node/Fibre to the Building) which used the existing telephone cable from the premises to the node on the street or the basement of the building in FTTB. This was much cheaper and faster to deploy but had its own problems as the existing copper was used. Apart from the slow speed where the node was far from the premises there was also the issue of corrosion and dry joints which severely slowed the internet....

Will it be a VOIP phone system, a hosted VOIP phone system, on-premises VOIP System or PABX telephone system?

NBN is the federal government initiative to replace the old and ageing copper wires with a mix of fibre, copper and satellite-based services.

It was also the slowest deployment method as a lot of work was involved to get the fibre into the premises....
