ACCC To Take Over Collection Of Internet Activity Statistics

Three months after the Australia Bureau of Statistics – incredibly to some observers – announced it was dropping its collection of Internet activity statistics, the more enlightened Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has announced it will take over the task.

The ACCC will use the data for periodic and aggregated releases of “Internet activity metrics”, that can be used by the public, industry, government agencies and other interested parties, it said.


It will collect data from 11 sources, including Telstra, TPG, Vocus, Optus, VHA, Australian Private Networks, Harbour ISP, IPStar, SkyMesh, Aussie Broadband and MyRepublic, it said, though oddly the National Broadband Network – which has figures those bodies don’t have –  doesn’t seem to have been included.


The ACCC said it plans to use the data for periodic and aggregated releases of “Internet activity metrics”, which could be used by the public, industry, government agencies and other interested parties, presumably including the media.


CDN looks forward to the resumption of information.
