nbn has announced commencement of an end-user pilot over Hybrid Fibre-Coaxial (HFC) cables.

The pilot in Redcliffe, Queensland, will involve around 300 homes and four service providers, testing the connection process and the customer experience.

The nbn Corporate Plan estimates that around four million premises – or around one third of Australian homes and business – will receive high-speed broadband via HFC.

nbn CEO, Bill Morrow, said: “The pilot marks pleasing progress for our HFC product. It will pave the way for the commercial release of HFC in 2016, marking the release of the final MTM (Multi-Technology Mix) technology. It will also help put us on course to meet our target of delivering better broadband to eight million happy homes by 2020.”
