Curious to know what it will look like when the National Broadband Network is installed into your house? We've put together this gallery of a fibre installation to give you an idea.
Fibre installation into your home usually happens in two parts, over two separate occasions.This gallery shows both.
The first day, the cable is brought in from the street to the outside wall of your premises. This may happen while the network is being built in your suburb.
Then, at a later point, when you order a service from an internet or phone company, the cable is brought through into your premises and the internal equipment installed.
When we talk about speeds delivered over the National Broadband Network, we are referring to the wholesale speed to telephone and internet service providers. The speed you can achieve, and services you can use, on your individual connection will depend on many factors including the services you subscribe to, the software and communication protocols you use, quality of your equipment and connection to your home/business, the broadband plans offered by your telephone or internet provider and how it designs its network to cater for multiple users.
