Sales and New Connections

A Network Termination Device (nbn™ NTD), sometimes also known as a Network Termination Unit (NTD) or an nbn™ Connection Box is the device installed inside your premises that your router plugs into, in order to establish a connection to the nbn network. This article pertains to a new process for HFC NTD's.

The NBN NTD appears as the black connection box with the words 'ARRIS'.

For all nbn™ connections, if not already existing at the location. there needs to be certain nbn™ network infrastructure installed both outside and inside the property. Originally a technician would be sent out to perform this work, both the device inside and installation outside the house or on the street.


What is the HFC Self-Install Kit

  • The HFC Self-Install Kit (SIK) carries the equipment that enables you to install the nbn™ HFC-NTD at your own convenience.
  • The SIK comes with equipment (shown below) and a Set up Guide to assist you with setting up.
  • nbn™ have also developed an installation video to assist with your set up.

With this new HFC Self-Install Kit, nbn™ will now send over the NTD (and attached kit components) instead of having to send a technician. You simply need to install the device inside your property and once connected and activated, by nbn™ and MyRepublic, you will be able to access this internet.HFC_SIK.png
