Find Out If Your Suburb Is Likely To Get NBN’s New Fibre-To-The-Curb

NBN Co, the company overseeing the rollout of the National Broadband Network (NBN), has already said it will be deploying fibre-to-the-distribution point (FTTdp) to a number suburbs across Australia. We now know which suburbs are likely to get FTTdp. Here’s the list.

Also known as fibre-to-the-curb, FTTdp is arguably a better option than fibre-to-the-node (FTTN), the predominant technology that is being used for the NBN. The company has previously stated that it intends to replace the Optus HFC assets that it bought in 2011 with FTTdp.
