nbn™ HFC made easy
All types of nbn™ network connections that utilise a physical line running to the premises are considered Fixed Line connections.
An nbn™ Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) connection is used in circumstances where the existing ‘pay TV’ or cable network can be used to make the final part of the nbn™ network connection. In this circumstance an HFC line will be run from the nearest available fibre node, to your premises.
HFC connections require an nbn™ network device to be installed at the point where the line enters your home. This device requires power to operate.
nbn™ HFC installation
There are two ways nbn™ HFC can be installed at your premises – through an nbn™ approved installer or if eligible, through self-installation.
When you contact your phone and internet provider to connect to the nbn™ network, they will confirm which installation process applies to your premises.
