How do I get connected?
Just like the NBN, you can connect with OptiComm via your friendly internet service provider – although not all providers are able to connect you. Getting set-up with Activ8me is easy, just choose our OptiComm Fibre option, or call our customer service team on 13 22 88.
What’s the difference between OptiComm and NBN?
The main difference is in who builds and maintains the fibre infrastructure. Beyond that, it gets into technical specifications in terms of the type of connection (OptiComm only provides FTTP – Fibre to the premises), while NBN provides other connection types too. For enabled residents, you’re getting a great method of connection that supports the highest speed connection available.
A huge advantage to this network is that it operates 100% over optic fibre, while the NBN utilizes a mix of optic fibre plus other older infrastructure such as copper wiring and coaxial cable. This enables much higher speeds, a more reliable service, and room to scale up traditional internet speeds in the future. When connecting through Activ8me, customers can choose from different speed tiers depending on budget and needs.
OptiComm connections are available to relatively smaller portions of the population due to the time it takes to build this next-generation infrastructure, hence why it’s generally available at new or recently developed estates.
