Said to offer “fibre-like” speeds, over a thousand homes across Sydney and Melbourne have today connected to the first fibre-to-the-curb (FTTC) NBN service.

FTTC currently offers speeds up to 100/40Mbps, however, the NBN Co plans to integrate copper acceleration tech, G.fast, by the end of the year to further raise this.

Homes in South Sydney, Coburg, North Melbourne and Miranda will soon be able to access FTTC, which device supplier, NetComm Wireless, claims is a “world-first” application of several reverse powered technologies.

FTTC is similar to fibre-to-the-node (FTTN), however a shorter length copper wiring is laid from a telecoms pit than a powered node, to offer faster speeds.

A fibre-to-the-curb (FTTC) service can be utilised by up to four homes.

The new FTTC has been implemented over the the highly criticised FTTN alternative. The NBN Co. forecasts up to a million Australian homes will take up the connection.

End user speeds are reliant on internet service providers (ISPs), however, the NBN Co. affirms FTTC provides a variety of wholesale speeds for ISPs to package several plans.
