Interesting video and great they have commercially released it.

I noticed in the video he says its FTTN (fibre to the node). It sounds abit like G.fast when its finally pushed out to the pole, which will have a node on it.

If I'm wrong in that thought let me know?

Think FTTN typically means FTTC VDSL in regards to NBN.

The Aussies, like us .... are very much into the G.Fast technology as well. I wish I could post a link to it, but it was in that report that I linked to on another site that costs a grand and a half to access !!!  :o ???

This installation looks like it is FTTP, but NBN has others types (the presenter mention HFC too).

Wider Context:

NBN Co is a single NGA network provider, but uses different technology in different areas:
- FTTP
- FTTN, which uses vectored VDSL2, on existing copper. Rather like our FTTC.
- FTTB, which uses hardware similar to FTTN I think
- HFC, which is cable running DOCSIS
- Wireless
- Satellite (NBN launched 2 satellites for this)

Aussie copper cabling is done using pillars; the nodes in FTTN tend to be slightly closer to homes than our cabs, so lines are a little shorter.

NBN are looking at G.Fast too, with Adtran.

I understand the cable network part isn't as good as they expected, so they will replace parts of it. I suspect this is where G.Fast comes in.

Main NBN packages:
- 100/40 (up to for FTTN, FTTB; not wireless or satellite)
- 50/20 (up to for FTTN, FTTB, wireless; not satellite; ignored by a lot of ISPs)
- 25/5
- 12/1

There are 3 package with higher speed for FTTP only, up to 1000/400. Takeup is miniscule on all 3 (about 0.01%).

Subscriber Counts:
- FTTP = 1.1m
- FTTN = 0.9m
- Wireless = 190k
- HFC = 150k
- Satellite = 75k
- FTTB = 60k

Coverage Counts:
- Fixed = 4.7m
- Wireless = 533k
- Satellite = 418k

Takeup
- On FTTP, about 15% take 100/40, while 80% take either 12/1 or 25/5.
- On FTTN, about 10% take 100/40, while 85% take either 12/1 or 25/5.

The provided facts were interesting, however the video itself was ten minutes too long.  :-X

Agreed, but his excitement it almost infectious, isn't it?

I remember feeling the same way over installing the initial broadband I had, and almost the same way over getting the first FTTC.

Nowadays, it has fallen back to just being a tool to be used.
