NBN needs to abandon copper-based Fibre to the Node (FTTN), says lobby group Internet Australia.

nbn, the company responsible for the National Broadband Network (NBN), has cancelled its plans to use Optus hybrid-fibre coaxial (HFC) assets as part of its rollout and is going to deploy fibre-to-the-distribution point (FTTdP) instead. The technology, also known as 'fibre-to-the-driveway', provides faster broadband speeds compared to copper-based HFC. Here are the details.
NBN Co is exploring the development of new devices that will let it fuse Australia's existing copper infrastructure onto its HFC cable footprint and backhaul, the company has revealed.
The devices would essentially allow NBN Co to use its cable infrastructure to provide existing copper lead-ins with enough bandwidth to achieve vectored VDSL2 speeds. Vectored VDSL2 is a newer generation copper-based broadband technology capable of speeds up to 100Mbps over distances of half-a-kilometre.
nbn, the company responsible for the rollout of the National Broadband Network (NBN), has just released its financial results for the last financial year.

Here's what you need to know about nbn's financial results.
