Today marks the highly anticipated ACN launch of two new nbn™ technologies: Fibre to the Node (FTTN) and Fibre to the Basement (FTTB).

The ACN launch of FTTN and FTTB means a massive opportunity for IBOs to expand their customer base with 38% of households and businesses expected to have FTTN and FTTB technologies rolled out to them by 2020. Remember, all these homes and businesses must make the switch to nbn™ so there is huge opportunity here.

With this much potential right on your doorstep, it’s definitely time to attack the nbn™ opportunity and become an nbn™ Ninja. Here’s what you need to know to get you started:

How do I know if my customers are nbn™ ready?

Easy! Simply enter their address in the nbn™ roll out map. Alternatively, enter their address on the Broadband page of your IBO Direct Storefront and you’ll know immediately the best options available for your customers.

What does FTTN & FTTB mean?

FTTN & FTTB technologies are where the nbn™ fibre meets the existing copper network that currently supports existing phone and ADSL services. Our product trainer, Rachel, provides an excellent rundown of the nbn™ technology mix in her nbn™ webinar series. Click here to watch.

Is FTTN & FTTB available to everyone?

To start with, FTTN and FTTB will be available to Telstra network customers, new developments or customers requiring a new line and all ACN customers (except those who are on Envision and Naked DSL). Find out more in our nbn™ cheatsheet.

What plans are available on FTTN & FTTB?

Your FTTN and FTTB customers can get the same great nbn™ plans with generous data allowances, 4 speed options and a choice of 12 or 24 month terms. Find out more in our Product Overview.
