What is nbn® 1000?

The nbn® 1000 plan is the fastest nbn® speed available for residential addresses in Australia, but it’s currently only available over certain nbn® connection types. Not every ISP offers nbn® 1000, the good news is that we do! 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’.

With a max download speed of 1000Mbps, this tier also offers a maximum upload speed of 50Mbps – around double the speed cap of the next tier down (25Mbps).

If you regularly have more than five users browsing, using VoIP phones, heavy gaming online, streaming 4K or 8K video, downloading large files, running home offices, or doing whatever they do on the internet, Gigabit internet might be a good option for your household.

Can I get nbn® 1000?

Not everyone is eligible for gigabit nbn® just yet, and it will depend on what technology is used for your connection. You’ll need an FTTP (fibre to the premises) connection at home in order to access this Ultrafast internet.

To check your connection type, click here to find out if your address is eligible. If your address doesn’t currently have an FTTP connection, stay tuned – NBN Co says around 5.1 million premises across Australia were able to access the nbn® Home Ultrafast speed tier as at 30 June 2022, with a million more due to be connected in 2023.

How many devices can 1Gbps support?

Gigabit internet was designed to be able to simultaneously support more than ten devices streaming in 4K – so it certainly has the capacity to support most Australian household requirements, even those running busy home offices. Gigabit internet can support even more devices if they aren’t performing data-intensive activities.

Is gigabit the same as fibre?

Gigabit internet is up there with some of the fastest speeds available for home nbn®, while fibre broadband is a method of delivering that internet connection to an address. In Australia, gigabit nbn® is delivered via fibre – a network of fibre-optic cables that are made up of a combination of optical fibre and coaxial cables.

Is 1Gbps enough for streaming?

Definitely. In fact, with nbn® 1000, you can have more than 10 devices all streaming 4K/Ultra HD simultaneously without any latency issues.

nbn® home Ultrafast removes the bottleneck that is experienced with some lower speed plans, meaning you can heavily stream, browse, work, and study with ease without your internet throttling you.

Do I need a special Ethernet cable for gigabit speeds?

Standard Ethernet cables at Category 5e or higher are usually fine for use with gigabit internet.

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.

If you need some assistance just reach out to our friendly team on 1300 66 55 75.

How do I know if my router is capable of gigabit speeds?

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 Swoop, 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 Swoop plan by checking your address here and select ‘yes’ when you get to the modem option.

What is the difference between a gigabit router and a normal router?

Gigabit routers are essentially like all other routers available. The only difference is the speed of the internet that it facilitates – a gigabit router can provide an internet speed of 1000Mbps.
