Australia - National Broadband Network - FTTP, FTTB roll outs

Synopsis

NBN Co is now deploying its “multi-technology mix” (MTM), offering a mix of fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP), fibre-to-the-basement (FTTB) and fibre-to-the-node (FTTN) in future nbn rollouts to homes and businesses. By 2017 FTTN and HFC began to dominate all new rollouts in preference for FTTP.

Out of the active end-user 75% had adopted FTTP in 2016 compared to only 44% in 2017. This trend of declining FTTP subscribers as a percentage of the overall market will continue over the next three years to 2020.

NBN Co revealed plans to begin deploying “skinny fibre” (thinner fibre cables) in new housing estates from 2017/2018.

The deployment of Fibre-to-the-Premises in greenfield estates is a fast-growing industry, supported by an updated regulatory regime and pricing models. Recent legislation provides the framework for all new major housing sites to be supplied with FTTP infrastructure, or to be made ready (pit and pipe) for such deployment. The nbn (NBN Co) has in place measures aimed at improving competition, minimising costs, and providing a level playing field for participants in this sector. Controversially, developers and home owners will be charged for the infrastructure costs in new housing developments.

nbn is the operator of last resort for housing developments where a commercial solution is not economically viable, while Telstra fills that role under certain conditions.
