Commonly asked questions

 

No. Cable internet, or broadband, uses different technology to ADSL connections. Cable doesn’t use a copper landline. You can still have a home phone with cable; it runs through your cable connection. In fact all Telstra cable plans now come with a phone line as standard.

 

Find out if you can get cable internet now by checking your address. You can learn more about the different internet connection types here.

 

No. Cable internet is a high-speed connection, and a longer ethernet cable in your home (not the coaxial cable outside your home) won't noticeably slow your speed. If your ethernet cable is excessively long, you may notice a very slight delay. 

 

You can’t increase the speed of the coaxial cable running to your home, but you can try a few tricks to help improve the speed inside your home:

  • Reset your modem
  • Move the modem away from appliances, wireless electronics, furniture & metal objects
  • Try using a shorter ethernet cable
  • Check for viruses or malware on your devices
  • Use a Wi-Fi extender

 

nbn co sets the cut-off date at 18 months after the nbn has become available in your area. If you’re in an area that is moving to FTTP, FTTN or HFC nbn connections, you need to migrate to the nbn BEFORE that date. Nbnco sends everyone plenty of advance notice, as do internet providers. 

 

 

Cable internet uses high-speed coaxial cable to complete the connection to your address. nbn fibre to the node may use coaxial cable or copper wire to complete the connection from the ‘node’ or street, to your address.
