FTTC

I have now seen that I am getting FTTC.

I have a dlink ultra taipan dsl-4320l modem/router in one.

Now as I am staying with Telstra when NBN comes thru I want to know what will be connected inside my house noting I want to use my dlink.

Isnt FTTC like FTTN.

I also want to make and receive calls and faxs.

Pictures would help as I just brought dlink a year ago and want to use it

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: FTTC

With FTTC NBN Co install a VDSL modem in your house which also supplies power to the node in the street. You can connect the WAN port of the DSL-4320L to the NBN modem and the Telstra Gateways WAN port to a LAN port on the Telstra Gateway to act as a VOIP adapter for phone and Fax

Re: FTTC

Even if you you ha VDSL modem you still need to use the NBN VDSL modem as it also provides power for the Node. All Telstra NBN services come with a phone service but you can also have addition phones from other VOIP providers.

You can find images of the NBN FTTC NTD (VDSL modem) here https://www1.nbnco.com.au/residential/learn/network-technology/fibre-to-the-curb-explained-fttc.html

If you want a Telstra Phone service you'll either need to use the Telstra Gateway connected to the NBN NTD or via the setup with your Dlink that @cf4 outlined above.

If you want to use the phone service of another voip provider, you'd need to use your dlink if compatible or a compatible device.
