AT THE NODE: NBN architect Stefan Keller-Tuberg, left, and president of fixed networks Federico Guillen with the FTTN cabinet at the corner of Bellevue Road and Pacific Highway, Belmont.THE first homes in Australia to use the National Broadband Network’s fibre-to-the-node technology were switched on in Lake Macquarie on Monday.
Homes in Belmont were the first in the southern hemisphere to use vectored VDSL technology, the key to achieving super-fast speeds on an existing copper network.
The technology allows more properties to connect to an NBN roadside cabinet.
NBN spokesman Tony Brown said trials around Belmont had shown the new technology was able to achieve internet speeds at least four times faster than standard ADSL connections.
“The success of the Belmont fibre-to-the-node trials in delivering great speeds, even on longer copper loop lengths, is hugely encouraging,” he said.
