    This vs Aussie broadband?

      This is not NBN so CVCs don't come in to play. If your apartment building has access to this, this over NBN any time.

        You sure this isn't nbn? Pretty sure fttb is just one of the many exciting technologies used in nbn.

        • +7 votes

          It’s definitely not NBN. I have this and NBN running to my building. Everyone in my building is on this network. You can only get it from TPG and iiNet (Same company). 96 down 38 up all day everyday

        • +2 votes

          If the building is serviced directly by TPG then TPG owns all the internet network hardware in the building. It's not NBN.

          Just like how TPG owns its own VDSL2 nodes in certain places in the ACT for example iiNet VDSL2 nodes (called TransAct).

          You can only get this FTTB from TPG through TPG or one of it's subsidiaries (iiNet and Westnet for example). So your choices for an ISP are very limited indeed. But it would be way better than say FTTN any day. But then again any thing is better than FTTN.

    FTTB :/

    Gosh the terms are so confusing. But I think fttb = not most people?

    • +1 vote

      I miss FTTB, used to pay this price for TPG and practically got 100Mbps/40 which cost so much more with NBN at my new place ($87 to be exact). I'm contemplating to switch to the 50/20 NBN plans but worried it will dramatically drop my streaming and download speeds.
      Any OZBs here that are heavy downloaders and media consumers and on 50/20 that can comment? FYI live alone so don't need to share internet with family or housemates.
      TY in advance.

        50/20 is more than ample for 4K HDR streaming on Netflix. Can generally max out at 5.2MBps on torrent services.

      • +7 votes

        I agree with Tof, 100/40 would be nice but I don't find the need for anymore than my 50/20 and I can stream 4k no worries.

        •  

          Same! only benefit of 100/40 is double the download speed for games and torrents also uploading content to YouTube, but for streaming services in 4k 50/20 is more than enough

          • +2 votes

            @solidussnake: Try that with a family.

            • +1 vote

              @entropysbane: I've got a family with 2 small children (<5 years old) and even Belong's Starter plan (35Mbps down) was ample for us. I have just upped it to 50/20 because I'm going to be working from home soon. I work in IT and have worked for ISPs in the past, so I'm well aware of bandwidth requirements. I download a lot and we stream 4k Netflix (only 1 TV).

              With older kids and multiple TVs yes you would really notice the drop from 100 to 50, but for someone who lives alone, 50 would be more than enough for day to day use, especially if money is tight.

              •  

                @bonezAU: Two small children is not at all the same as two teenagers as you will eventually discover.
                In my case there are three teenagers, and Mrs entropy has somehow become addicted to k-dramas on Netflix.

                Doesn’t seem to be picking up Korean though.

                Agree on single occupant households. I have set up my 85yo father with 50 only for when grandkids visit. 25 would do him tbh.

                •  

                  @entropysbane: lol, my missus has been watching Korean stuff on Netflix as well lately, no idea why. Best of luck to her.
                  Understood about teenagers, they'd need much more bandwidth than little kids sharing a TV streaming YouTube.

    I have FTTB in my apt building. When I put in my address, it redirects me to NBN plans and says it's unavailable..

    Edit: I have NBN FTTP - is that different…..?

    • +4 votes

      FTTB utilises fibre optic cable all the way to a shared point in the building’s communications room.

      FTTP there will be a NBN device installed somewhere in the apartment.

      •  

        FTTP would be considered better, right?

        and there's no way to get this deal since it's only for FTTB? How annoying! I was so looking forward to moving on from superloop..

        • +1 vote

          Yep FTTP is the better connection with highest speed. Superloop and ABB are generally regarded as the best providers here. Not the cheapest but certainly best networks and you get what you pay for.

          •  

            @Hybroid: Yep, was with aussie for all of 2019. Looking to move back in June when I'm considered a "new customer". Superloop had a $20 off for 6 months which I couldn't overlook. But I've been getting drop outs pretty often with them.

            •  

              @0lllllll0: Also changed to Superloop had alot of drops outs when I changed to them and also my peak internet speed has halved, sent multiple support tickets zero reply so I complained on their Facebook page ignored me and blocked and deleted my comments. Some nights netflix is constantly stopping and buffering and unwatchable

          •  

            @Hybroid: How does HFC connection compare to FTTP connection? Which is better and faster?

            •  

              @delfredo: HFC is good when it works. HFC upload speeds can tank really slow when people are working from home.

              FTTP is better for all sorts of reasons like being more stable, faster speed and doesn't have upload speed problems.

        • +5 votes

          FTTP is no doubt the better technology but for $60/m and to not deal with CVC congestion or the NBN at all, this service (extremely limited) is by far the better option.

          It really shouldn't be compared to the NBN as there are a very small number of people who can access this and therefore the comparison is a very unlikely scenario. I have the choice of FTTC NBN or FTTB TPG and the cost saving with TPG is about $30/m for a service that has been 100/40 with no congestion issues for the last 3 years.

  •  

    NBNCO website says I have FTTP at the house I am moving into, anyone know of deals for that type of connection?

      You've got nbn fttp which is the best nbn, congrats. I'd recommend Aussie Broadband, I think there's a first month of free from them, look around ozbargain.
      If iiNet address checker directs you to their nbn page that means you don't have access to TPG fttb which is completely separated from nbn btw. TPG run their own fttb, along with their subsidiary iiNet.

    •  

      FTTP is the best you can get. The only bad thing is the price$ vs speed we pay compared to the rest of the world.

  • +10 votes

    This is FTTB through TPG’s own infrastructure.
    Has nothing to do with NBN and is in selected cherry picked (ie. densely populated profitable) areas only, but there are many apartment blocks which have the choice of both.

    If the address checker only shows NBN then you won’t get this.

  • +2 votes

    Can I migrate from TPG's FTTB to this iiNet's offer so I can get 3 months for free?

  •  

    This seems to be 90/20 not 90/40. Anyone know what modem they use?

    Premium Typical evening download speed 7PM-11PM: 90Mbps Upload speeds: Up to 20Mbps

  •  

    Was already considering swapping to FTTB through TPG but this takes the cake; 6 month contract + 3 Months off? Cheering!

    Thanks OP - hopefully the service is as good as I'm expecting it to be. Can't be worse than trying to squeeze two Zoom meetings on ADSL2+ at 6Mbs.

    •  

      I was with TPG FTTB for 2 years and never had any issues. A week into the iinet FTTB so far, no issues at all same service as the TPG one.

    •  

      I am with TPG FTTB and recently I do get ping spikes and speed spikes at peak hour, perhaps due to congestion. TPG support haven't responded to me either and it's been over a week.

      Apart from the peak periods it's fine get 6ms 90/30 speeds.

    •  

      General update for those that ordered:
      - Very happy with set up: 1 week turn around (probs quicker if there wasn't 2 public holidays) and installation was painless and quick (it took longer trying to call someone to cancel my old service)
      - Speeds varying between 60-80 down and 33-37 up between 8am - 12pm today on wifi (could be faster over lan)

  •  

    I got same deal for 6 months contract. got 3 months for free.
    approx 90+ download and 25+ upload speed.
    Very impressed.

    Anyone on TPG fttb call up for retention credits?

  • +4 votes

    Just to clarify FTTB service-
    NBN also provides FTTB and as an end-user NBN FTTB got no different than any other NBN service, which means you buy services from all different service providers that got the possibility to get congested during peak hours like any other NBN service.

    The difference with TPG/IINET(they are the same network now) FTTB is, TPG/IINET got direct fibre(bypassing NBN network) to mostly high-density apartment buildings where they provide internet service. This FTTB is the best as per my use and online forums. you can get 100/40 speed all the time without any congestion, soon you might get upto 125/25 speed at 59/month (TPG insider source, not sure, if anyone getting more than 100 meg can confirm here).
    Please remember this service is not available at all apartments. Finds online for TPG FTTB to check if your building got TPG/IINET FTTB.

    you can also request TPG to install FTTB to your apartment complex if your have more than approx. 50~80 internet connection in your apartments.

  •  

    Welp, not available at my address.

  •  

    What is the upload speed?
    For video conferencing.

  •  

    This is sweet. I've checked the website and I'm eligible. I'll be saving $20 each month and will be going from 50 -> 90 Mbps. :D

  • +1 vote

    TPG's FTTB is the best internet connection I've ever had. Pretty much guaranteed 90-95mpbs 24/7. Going to miss it whenever I move out and have to deal with NBN :(

  •  

    I got this just now. Didn't realise about the retention offers. With Kogan at $85.90. Thus, this is a better deal regardless.

  •  

    Anyone know if they'll still be offering these FTTB deals in a few months time? Great deal but I'm waiting for my mobile broadband plan to end

  •  

    This deal has been around for over a year now. Surprised it hasn't been posted already

    •  

      I only knew of it today but I did find another post from last year for the same deal (same promo code even) but that was for a 24 month contract. Might be a deal breaker to some people. 🤷‍♂️

  •  

    I recently installed this and have been very happy so far. $30 per month cheaper than the equivalent NBN plan. Generally 90 download/33 upload. I have experience a few temporary major speed drops to around 10mpbs download/ 33 upload around 9.15pm on consecutive evenings last week - I attribute this to general internet congestion (not the fault of TPG / iinet).

  •  

    wtf is the difference between fttp and fttb, i thought they were the same thing. unless fttp means it only runs to the box outside your house and uses the existing copper from house to box idk

    •  

      Could be wrong but my understanding is FTTB routes fibre to your building complex (think MDF in an apartment block), then internal copper to your actual residence, where as FTTP is straight to your residence.

      I would assume FTTP is rare in dense living and FTTB doesn't really exist much in the burbs (potentially FTTC - Fibre to the Curb is more common)

      •  

        Yep, mostly correct, FTTB is the same as FTTN but just instead of the ‘node’ being in a box on the street serving ~384 houses, it’s situated near the MDF of an apartment building.

        FTTC is a little different in that it requires the NCD from NBN for the reverse power for the DPU in the pit.

        FTTC should technically be able to allow for higher speeds, but NBN seem to have given that a miss with the May rollout of higher speed plans on FTTP and HFC, although HFC has already been found to not be able to delivered the 1000Mbps speeds that FTTP can do without breaking a sweat on NBN.

    •  

      TPG/iiNet FTTB is different to NBN's FTTB. TPG/iiNet FTTB is private and not owned by the government and not paid for my tax payers.

    Awesome, I just used it, thanks for that! Please note it is case-sensitive.
