What is nbn® 1000?
The nbn® 1000 plan is the fastest nbn® speed available for residential addresses in Western Australia. The maximum download speed on these plans is 1000 megabits per second (Mbps), which is equal to one gigabit (Gbps) – hence the nickname ‘gigabit internet’.
Along with a maximum download speed of 1000Mbps, you’ll also enjoy a maximum upload speed of 50Mbps – around double the max upload speed of the next tier down (250Mbps).
If you regularly have more than five heavy internet users online at the same time, gigabit internet might speed up your home offices, online gaming, VoIP phones, HD video streaming or large downloads.

The downside of this ultrafast internet is that it’s currently only available over certain nbn® connection types. This means that not everyone in Western Australia is eligible for gigabit nbn® just yet, and it will depend on what technology is used for your connection.
To get this ultrafast internet at home, you’ll need to have an FTTP (fibre to the premises) connection. To check your connection type, click here to find out if your address is eligible.
According to NBN Co, around 5.1 million premises in Australia had access to the nbn® Home Ultrafast speed tier by mid-2022. If your address wasn’t one of those with the connection, you might be one of the million more due to be connected in 2023. Keep an eye on NBN Co for updates to your area.

Gigabit nbn®, also known as nbn® 1000, refers to the gigabit-per-second (1000 megabits) download speed this plan offers. It’s also sometimes called gigabit internet or Ultrafast nbn®.
Gigabit internet is a great option if you like to stream 4K or 8K games or play multiplayer games online. Faster internet reduces lagging or latency issues, meaning no awkward pauses at key moments in your games.
nbn® 1000 is intended to be able to handle more than ten devices streaming in 4K at the same time – so it will almost certainly support your household requirements, even if you’re running a couple of home offices. The less data intensive your internet use, the more devices your gigabit internet connection will support.
Gigabit internet refers to the speed of the internet connection (the fastest currently available in Australia), while fibre broadband refers to the connection type that delivers the internet to an address. Fibre is the term for a network of fibre-optic cables that are made up of a combination of optical fibre and coaxial cables. A fibre connection is the only connection that can currently deliver gigabit internet.
Absolutely – nbn® 1000 lets you stream 4K/Ultra HD on more than 10 devices at the same time without any latency issues. This plan removes bottlenecks that are experienced on lower speed plans.
Gigabit internet requires Ethernet cables at Category 5e or higher. If you are installing new cable you may want to use Category 6a or Category 7 to future-proof for faster internet in the future.
You can find out if your router is gigabit by checking the router name or description. If it doesn’t say it anywhere on the router itself, you should be able to visit the manufacturer website and look it up.
When you connect to NodeOne, you have the option of purchasing a modem from us. We highly recommend this to ensure you have the most up-to-date tech.
For a limited time our modems are on sale for $130 down from $180! Simply sign up to a NodeOne plan by checking your address and select ‘yes’ when you get to the modem option.
The only difference between gigabit routers and normal routers is the speed of the internet that it facilitates. A gigabit router can provide an internet speed of 1000Mbps, provided you have the right connection at your address.
