FttP/VDSL Internet Plans for OptiComm Enabled Estates & Apartment Complexes

What is OptiComm™?

OptiComm is one of Australia's largest private-owned alternative to the national broadband network (nbn®). OptiComm is an ASX-listed company that, similar to nbn Co., build, operate and maintain their own telecommunications 'fixed line' fibre-optic network. OptiComm are wholesale operators, meaning they sell their OptiComm plans to OptiComm providers, like Activ8me, who then offer retail OptiComm services to customers.

All Activ8me OptiComm services include:

  • No setup costs (on a six-month contract)
  • No lock-in contract available ($98 setup fee applies)
  • Free plan changes (up-and-down!)

Choose your contract term

Choose your wireless router

A Wireless Router is required if you want to wirelessly connect to your internet service (using Wi-Fi). You can choose to use your own compatible router, or alternatively purchase one from Activ8me that we'll send out to you pre-configured for your service.

What’s the difference between OptiComm™ and nbn®?

They both sell wholesale internet plans, but nbn® and OptiComm are two different networks who have separate infrastructure and ISPs (Internet Service Providers).

It’s very uncommon to have both nbn® and OptiComm at your property.

One benefit of Activ8me is that we can supply a reliable, unlimited data allowance internet service across both nbn® and OptiComm™ networks.

What Modem and/or Router do I Need for OptiComm?

An OptiComm broadband connection requires OptiComm to have already provided your premise with an OptiComm Connection Box (sometimes called an ONT or NTD).

This connection box (normally in the garage) acts as your modem.

You will need to connect/purchase a router which will then distribute the connection via WiFi.

Activ8me sell several routers which are preconfigured to work on our network, taking the hassle out of it all.

You can view available routers under the ‘Choose Your Accessories’ section in the OptiComm plans above.

Alternatively, you can try using your current router.

Although we can’t guarantee a BYO router will work, we’ll do our best to help you reconfigure it to work on our network.

If you have any questions, feel free to call our Australian based team on 13 22 88.

Who can get OptiComm?

The majority of the OptiComm network are Fibre-to-the-Premise (FttP), which offers a superior performance over other Fibre-to-the-X technologies.

Connections to the OptiComm network, however, are limited to OptiComm estates.

You must live in an OptiComm broadband-enabled estate to get OptiComm internet.

Typically, you’ll find OptiComm in new or recently developed housing estates/communities, as well as some modern inner-city apartment complexes.

You can see if your premises are part of the OptiComm or nbn® network by searching your address below:
