NBN To Publish Speed Test Results
Initial results of an NBN fixed-line homes speed test will be published next month, Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) chair Rod Sims has said.
Some 2000 homes are currently being used in the monitoring period after the ACCC last year putout a call for voluntary participants. The monitoring problem will continue over the next four years, eventually embracing 4000 homes.
Sims told ABC Radio the speed monitoring program is part of a new approach the regulator is taking to improve customer experience.
“We’ll be putting out a monitoring report by the end of March where everybody can see which providers are providing what speeds, and that will firstly allow consumers to see what’s going on,” he said.
But more monitoring and more reports will follow, Sims said. Among other things, he said, the results should show which wholesale networks or retailers have not bought sufficient CVC capacity.
