I got a free NBN contract.
It was the cheapest I’ve ever paid.
I signed up with Telstra and Optus.
I was told I could go straight from signing up with one provider to another, with no need for a formal contract.
I had to sign a pre-negotiation agreement that said I’d be paying for two years of the NBN.
I did the contract, and I signed.
It had been my goal to get an NBN contract with a company that could offer me the best deal.
It seemed like a good idea, and it was.
But, by the time I signed, it was already too late.
I didn’t get the NBN service I wanted, nor did I get the service I needed.
I got the service that I was promised.
And that’s the problem with the NBN: it doesn’t deliver what you want.
I started my NBN journey with the wrong expectations.
The NBN rollout is supposed to deliver high-speed broadband to every Australian household, but it’s been delivering just a fraction of what you might expect.
Read more about the NBN and the rollout of the Federal Government’s fibre-to-the-node (FTTN) network.
What I ended up with was a service that wasn’t quite what I expected.
I’m talking about the fibre-coaxial network, or FTTN, which was supposed to replace copper telephone and landline networks in the country, but is now being rolled out as a replacement for old telephone and fibre-optic lines.
The FTTN network uses coaxial cables, which are more expensive to build than coaxial cable itself.
But it’s not just coaxial coax.
It’s also digital fibre, which uses high-frequency waves to transmit data at high speeds, instead of copper.
It means that it’s cheaper and easier to deploy than copper, and that it can deliver more than what you could ever imagine.
The problem is, the NBN’s fibre rollout has not delivered on its promise to provide fast broadband to everyone.
According to figures released in December 2016, the rollout is only delivering 50 per cent of what people expected.
The Government has promised to deliver 100 per cent by 2020.
That’s not good enough, and we need to fix it.
But what is the problem?
FTTN is a hybrid technology That’s a good thing FTTN has some advantages over copper, such as being cheaper to build.
In fact, the Federal government has committed to investing more than $1 billion into the NBN by 2020, and there’s a clear commitment to deliver more FTTN networks in Australia.
But the reality is, FTTN isn’t really a new technology.
It has existed for decades in some form or another.
The first FTTN service was built in 1947 in Tasmania, and was subsequently rolled out to the rest of Australia.
However, it wasn’t until the late 1980s that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) started issuing FTTN licences.
These are contracts between the NBN company and the telco to use a certain technology in a particular geographical area, which is then licensed by the NBN operator.
The FCC uses these licences to offer a different service to each company.
For example, it might license a service called Fibre Optic to an ISP in a rural area in Western Australia, and provide a different type of FTTP service to an existing FTTP network.
The difference between the two is called the “fibre band” or “band”.
FTTN’s band is designed to cover a wide range of distances.
It covers areas where fibre optic cables are not widely used, and where the NBN is already using copper to transmit its data.
This allows NBN Co to deliver the faster speeds of copper cables, without the cost of upgrading the FTTP equipment.
But there are some things that are different between the different FTTN technologies.
FTTN uses high frequency waves to deliver data at much higher speeds.
This technology is called fibre-cable.
It requires more copper and is expensive to produce, whereas FTTP uses coax and is cheaper to produce.
Because it uses coax, it has a limited bandwidth, which means it’s more expensive for a provider to sell FTTP than copper.
Because of this, it’s a hybrid of copper and FTTN.
This is where the issue comes in.
FTTP is a “fiber-cables-only” technology, meaning it doesn, and can’t, connect to any other equipment in the network.
This means it doesn the same things as copper, but uses fibre-technology.
It can use copper to connect to a FTTP router, but cannot connect to other equipment on the network, which would include fibre-based switches, switches to download content from the internet, and so on.
The other major difference between FTTN and copper is that fibre-tech equipment is usually much cheaper to buy.
The government has promised that by 2020 all customers will be able to access fibre-powered devices such as computers, phones, tablets
