Nbn™ has a program that enables people to switch the technology that will be connected to their premises. Individuals or small groups of people can apply to have an FTTN connection upgraded to fibre to the premises (FTTP), although it’s subject to certain conditions. The switch can only be carried out once the original technology has been deployed, is subject to Nbn™’s design and construction plan and cannot bring forward the construction schedule.

The cost is $330 for the application plus $330 for the design quote plus the building payment, which covers the actual construction cost and can only be specified by paying for the design quote. You will need to pay the difference between the cost of the originally planned technology and the cost of the new technology chosen for the switch. There’s more information available at on the Nbn™ website.
