You’ve been told you are getting

Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC), this uses an existing cable TV cable (a Coaxial cable) to connect from the fibre optical cable to the house. It is probably the next best to direct fibre to the premises. The Coaxial cable will be used to connect from the nearest Fibre Optic node (street cabinet) and will be used to make the final part of the network connection to the premises, terminating in a box on the external wall of the house.

 

 This is a typical equipment layout

The internal equipment will be installed by you ISP. A coaxial cable will connect from the external wall box to an internal wall outlet.

The internal equipment will be installed by you ISP. It will be a connection box holding NBN modem. A Coaxial cable will be used to connect from the wall outlet to the NBN connection box (modem). Where a pay TV service exists a splitter will be use to connect the pay TV and the connection box.

A power supply needs to be close to the connection point.

It has connection ports for connecting network cable (cat6) between the connection box and the gateway/router. From the router (generally a wireless /router) you connect your computer mobile devices TV or similar equipment that uses your local area network. It may have additional ports to let you hardwire devices on the network or use wireless for connections.

The phone will connect to a port on the Gateway/router.

If the phone or router is some distance you may find that the ISP will not do that connection. In that case you will need to get a licenced cable layer to do it for you. Most electricians hold that licence.
