      nbn® FTTP Upgrade

      Have you been searching for an nbn® FTTP upgrade? We know how hard it can be to find a reliable internet connection away from the city, especially for those in regional towns, so we’re usually looking for better and faster internet options.

      Whether you’re looking for your first internet plan or want to upgrade your current one, you can reach out to us at Skymesh. We offer reliable internet service to parts of regional Australia, whether for personal use or to make your small to medium business flourish. Depending on your location, we may have nbn internet plans you can subscribe to so you can stay connected to the rest of the world.

      Read along if you want to know everything about FTTP and what it can do for you.

      What happens in an nbn FTTP upgrade?

      FTTP refers to Fibre to the Premises, a technology from the nbn network that utilises a fixed line connection. Only approved nbn technicians can execute an nbn FTTP upgrade.

      Before your upgrade, you can expect a pre-installation visit from accredited nbn technicians. They will examine the exterior of your residence to identify any potential challenges and advise you on the upcoming installation appointment. If they find any pre-installation work required, they may execute the work before or during your installation schedule.

      During the visit, you can also expect some non-invasive construction and installation activities from the technicians. A FTTP connection also requires an NTD (Network Termination Device) to be installed inside your premises.

      Ultimately, when performing an nbn FTTP upgrade, the nbn technician will install optical fibre cables directly to your premises, replacing your current plan’s connection approach.

      For instance, instead of the fibre optic cables running to a central node (as with Fibre to Node or FTTN) or to a Distribution Point Unit (as with Fibre to the Curb or FTTC) and still using the existing copper as the last part of the connection, the optical fibre in FTTP is connected directly to your home or establishment.

      Once the nbn equipment is installed, the nbn technician will test your connection to make sure the upgrade is done properly. From there, your retail service provider will finalise the upgrade. They may also offer you nbn-compatible equipment, like the plug-n-play router we have at Skymesh, so you can connect your devices to your new FTTP connection.

      Because of its connection approach, nbn Fibre to the Premises is generally considered the highest-performing nbn connection type compared to its counterparts in terms of speed, reliability, and connectivity, as these technologies rely on existing copper networks or hybrid technologies as part of the connection. This includes FTTN, FTTC, Fibre to the Building (FTTB), or Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC).

      This means households with nbn FTTP connection typically enjoy faster and more reliable internet. It’s also possible that they can simultaneously connect more devices, such as smart TVs and digital tablets, to an nbn-compatible router without worrying about lag.

      Nonetheless, the speed of an FTTP connection can be influenced by several factors. These include the quality and compatibility of the hardware you’re using, like your modem or router. Software configurations and radio frequency interference can also impact the speed of your FTTP connection.

      There are also particular circumstances that can affect your connection speed. For example, if you have internal networking set up within your home or business establishment, it might affect the connection since speed is a shared source.

      Ultimately, the speed tier of your plan will determine how fast your internet connection will be.

      Do I have to upgrade my connection to FTTP?

      The promise of an nbn FTTP upgrade seems inviting, especially for households and small to medium businesses that can benefit from a faster internet connection.

      Before you search online for ‘FTTP plans’ or ‘nbn FTTP upgrade’ in hopes of finding a retail service provider that can help you upgrade to FTTP, it’s important to learn more about it. First, you need to check if you’re eligible for an nbn FTTP upgrade.

      The nbn FTTP upgrade is available to eligible customers at select locations. Reach out to your provider to see if your address and current plan are covered by the nbn upgrades.

      If you work from home and are constantly in video conference meetings, or if your business relies on a fast internet connection to generate orders and process deliveries, FTTP could be the way to go for you if you’re eligible for it.

      At Skymesh, we know that regional Australia deserves a faster, more reliable internet connection. As much as you, we want to ensure you stay connected to your friends and family.

      This is why we offer a variety of nbn plans to different parts of regional Australia. Depending on your location, you may be able to avail yourself of our Fixed Line, Fixed Wireless, or Sky Muster® satellite internet plans.

      For our Fixed Line connections, including Fibre to the Premises, we offer cheap internet plans with different speed tiers that may suit your browsing needs.

      These include nbn 25 plans (typical evening speeds of up to 25 Mbps download and up to 4 Mbps upload between 7.00 p.m. and 11.00 p.m), nbn 50 plans (typical evening speeds of up to 49 Mbps download and up to 16 Mbps upload between 7.00 p.m. and 11.00 p.m.), and nbn 100 plans (typical evening speeds of up to 96 Mbps download and up to 16 Mbps upload between 7.00 p.m. and 11.00 p.m).

      How much does an FTTP upgrade cost?

      If you’ve determined that an upgrade is possible in your location, you might be wondering about the nbn FTTP upgrade cost. The specific nbn FTTP upgrade cost depends on a number of factors.

      In certain instances, you might be subject to the new development fee or a subsequent installation charge. Retail service providers may also impose additional activation costs on top of these fees.

      Alternatively, the cost of an nbn upgrade could vary if you’re upgrading from an existing nbn technology under the Technology Choice Program. The cost will hinge on a variety of factors, such as the proximity to existing nbn infrastructure, the distances between premises in scope, the complexity of construction, existing nbn technology, and the remoteness of your location.
