What is FTTC?

FTTC or Fibre to the Curb brings fibre optic cable all the way to the edge of the premises. The connection then travels through the existing copper lead in to the home. You will receive a nbn™ connection device that you will install by connecting to your main telephone port as shown below. You will still need a router to receive WiFi.

NBN™ ready routers connect to the device though the yellow gateway port seen above to establish an internet connection and broadcast WiFi throughout the home.

This type of connection does not require a nbn™ appointment most of the time and is relatively easy to install. The connection should automatically establish without any further activation. It is normal for synchronisation to take up to 30 minutes.

There will be a troubleshooting section available soon.

Note: FTTC connections require an NCD (Network Connection Device) installed. If you do not have one, please contact your agent, landlord, or our team on 1300 880 905.
