How to locate a Node

Answered

We are expecting nbn to be connected in the next month. We are currently 5km from the exchange and have borderline adsl with poor speeds (about 4mps). I was wondering if the new nbn nodes will be closer. Our old exchange has been replaced with an nbn cabinet, but I cant see any other ones locally. I have looked at the nbn node map but we are yellow which means the nodes can’t be located by me.

Basically only NBN know how youll be wired up. Essentially its the luck of the draw if you'll get a good connection by being on a shorter length of cable to the node or unlucky being on a longer length

Re: How to locate a Node

As a general rule, the nodes will be installed near where the Telstra pillars are (a bit harder to find if the pillars are pits).
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
