HFC or 'Hybrid Fibre Coaxial' is used in areas where existing Pay TV (foxtel) cables have previously been rolled out, colloquially known as 'Cable'. As the name suggests, it combines both fibre and coax in the delivery path.
NBN installers are required to attend for these types of activations and will use an existing Foxtel/Bigpond outlet to connect their modem to. If the premises has never had a connection before, they will run a cable for you during the installation appointment.
NBN installers are limited in the tasks they can perform during your installation, with one of the main limitations being that they cannot climb onto roof tops of any height. This is simply not premitted.
If for some reason an NBN installer deems your install to be non standard, they will ask you to contact a private accredited technician to complete the cabling for you. After this cabling is done, you can then reschedule a return visit from NBN to complete the activation of your service.
