This morning, NBN released a list of the 10 most expensive fibre to the premises (FTTP) installations rolled out under its original network plan. Despite the company generally staying tight-lipped about 'commercial in confidence' information -- including in its reports to the Senate committee charged with keeping it in line -- it's clearly happy to publish data that supports its government-mandated multi-technology mix.

The tech that could revolutionise the roll-out of the National Broadband Network is one step closer to reality. The first installation of a FttDP -- or fibre to the curb -- connection has been completed in an NBN trial in Victoria, and the results are impressive.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

Building the Fibre to the Curb (FTTC) portion of its network has begun, NBN announced today. Alongside the announcement comes the news that some homes and businesses "will have a revised timeline" on when you can connect.

Here's how to find out when you'll be getting NBN at your place.

When you sign up for the NBN in search of a broadband boost, telcos don't tend to mention the hassles you might have with your home phone line. Here are some questions you need to consider before you move your phone to the NBN.

Ongoing NBN installation faults have delayed the Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) rollout, while red tape has left hundreds of homes in broadband limbo for months – with relief finally on the way following Fairfax Media investigations.

The move comes as NBN pushes to accelerate the nationwide rollout, recently putting another 90,000 complicated connections on hold amid the growing complexity of the Multi-Technology Mix rollout.

After far too long a wait, Australia will finally have a regulator to officially monitor the country's mediocre internet connection speeds. Around 4000 premises will be part of the ACCC-run monitoring system, which will track performance at peak and off-peak times on fixed-line NBN connections.

Feeling a little bit confused by the stupidly complicated and ever-changing rollout of the National Broadband Network around the country? Us too, to be honest with you. Here's our quick guide to the different types of NBN that might be installed at your home or business.

The NBN's Goldilocks technology of fibre to the distribution point (FttDP) -- sitting just right in between the convenience of fibre to the node (FttN) and the speed of fibre to the premises (FttP) -- is a step closer to becoming a reality in Australia. NBN calls the tech 'fibre to the curb' (FttC) for some unknown reason, rather than FttDP or fibre to the driveway, but it's earmarked Australia's own Netcomm Wireless as the supplier of tech for the future network build-out.

The rollout of Australia's NBN will abandon almost all of Optus's HFC cable network that it paid $800 million for back in 2011, with up to 700,000 homes around the country instead being connected to the NBN through fibre to the distribution point -- a new technology that brings many of the advantages of fibre to the premises to a fibre to the node-style construction method.
