What is NBN and Why is Conduit Required?

The National Broadband Network (NBN) is an Australian national wholesale open-access data network project. It provides high-speed broadband services across the country, essential for modern communication needs.

Conduit Requirement for NBN

To take advantage of the NBN HFC (Hybrid Fibre-Coaxial) network, developers and builders must install the appropriate size lead-in conduit from the property boundary to the NBN Utility Box (PCD). This conduit protects the NBN cables, ensures safety, and allows for future maintenance without extensive digging or disruption (NBN Co)​​ (SpinTel).

Does NBN Cable Need to be in Conduit?

Yes, the NBN cable needs to be in conduit to ensure proper protection and compliance with NBN standards. The conduit helps protect the cables from physical damage and environmental factors, ensuring the longevity and reliability of the broadband service. Proper installation of the lead-in conduit is crucial, and it should be handled by qualified professionals to avoid any potential issues or rejections by NBN (SECURE A COM)​​ (NBN Co).


Key Features:

  • Telecommunication Use: Specifically designed for protecting data, phone, and TV cables in NBN installations.
  • Compliance and Standards: Meets NBN requirements, ensuring you comply with Australian standards for communication installations.
  • UV Stabilized: Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, our conduit is UV stabilized to prevent brittleness from exposure to harmful UV rays.
  • Sandwich Core Construction: Combines rigid outer layers with a lighter core, offering excellent protection while being lightweight and easy to handle.


Sandwich Core Construction

Our NBN Communication Medium-Duty PVC Conduit features a sandwich core construction. This innovative design combines rigid outer layers with a lighter core, offering several benefits:

  • Lightweight Design: The lighter core reduces the overall weight, making installation easier and more efficient.
  • Cost-Effective: The sandwich core design is cheaper to manufacture while maintaining necessary protection for your cables.


Why Use NBN Conduit?

  • Mechanical Protection: Medium-duty and robust, designed to protect communication cables from physical damage.
  • Telecommunication Installation: Ideal for concealing and protecting data, phone, and TV cables, offering superior strength and durability.
  • Clear Identification: Specifically marked for NBN use, ensuring proper installation and compliance with NBN standards.


Available Sizes:

Our NBN Communication Medium-Duty PVC Conduit comes in various diameter sizes:

  • 20mm
  • 35mm (Note: The 35mm conduit is actually a 32mm pressure pipe used for Telstra/NBN 35mm purposes.)
  • 50mm
  • 100mm


Austel vs. Telstra and NBN Conduit:

Key Differences in Measurements

  • Austel Conduits:
    • For 20mm and 50mm sizes, we measure Austel communication conduit by the outside diameter, ensuring a precise fit for telecommunication cables.
    • For 80mm and 100mm sizes, we measure Austel conduit by the inside diameter.
  • Telstra and NBN Conduits:
    • Both Telstra and NBN conduits measure the 20mm and 50mm sizes by the inside diameter, which specifically differs from the Austel measurement standards.
    • This affects the fit and protection level of the cables, highlighting the importance of understanding and using the correct conduit type for your installations.
