A number of ADSL2 sites throughout Perth are converting to VDSL2 or what is known as Fibre To The Node (FTTN) technology in the next few months. For more details go to www.nbnco.com.au and enter your site address, leave your email for updates if your area is not yet ready.
FTTN technology utilises "nodes" which are green coloured cabinets connected to fibre that are sprouting up along streets in certain connected suburbs, the distance between the node and your house ultimately determines the highest possible speed.
This installation took place south of the river in a newly enabled NBN area, you get the usual notification from NBN and then your letterbox starts filling with offers from the internet service providers. In this case the existing provider (iinet) was used. A self installation service was ordered and the VDSL2 modem arrived, the installation to activate the site was booked for the next week.
Notification was issued that the connection was done, the new modem connected up to the existing phone connection (no filter required), after a few config details the connection synced up.
