Australians receiving broadband retailers’ advertised download speeds more often


Broadband retailers are more regularly meeting or exceeding their advertised speed claims for NBN fixed-line plans during busy evening hours, the ACCC’s latest Measuring Broadband Australia (MBA) report shows. (Fixed-line connections are those that have a physical line running to the property, such as fibre to the premises or fibre to the node.)

In August this year, retailers on average met or exceeded their download speed claims in 92 per cent of the all-important busy hours (7-11pm on weekdays) when demand on the network is highest. This is up from 88 per cent in May.
