nbn™ Hybrid Fibre Coaxial explained
All types of nbn™ network connections that utilise a physical line running to the premises are considered fixed line connections. An nbn™ Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) connection is used in circumstances where the existing ‘pay TV’ or cable network can be used to make the final part of the nbn™ network connection. In this circumstance a HFC line will be run from the nearest available fibre node, to your premises.
Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) connections require an nbn™ network device to be installed at the point where the HFC line enters your home. This device requires power to operate, and can be installed by an approved nbn™ installer or service provider.
What does the nbn™ Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) equipment look like?
*If you have a pay TV or cable internet service connected to the same wall outlet as your nbn™ connection box, you will need a splitter.
**AveoConnect will supply a gateway (router) and Ethernet cable to connect your internet and phone devices as required.
