Fixed-line NBN broadband services reached a new performance high in February 2021, the ACCC’s thirteenth quarterly Measuring Broadband Australia report reveals.
Consumers on NBN fixed-line connections experienced strong speed performance in December last year, with retail service providers achieving between 85.0 and 98.9% of
maximum plan speeds across all fixed-line plans in the busy evening hours of 7-11pm in December 2020, according to the latest Measuring Broadband Australia report from the competition regulator, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
Broadband speeds have been hitting records during the pandemic, with RSPs now able to deliver almost 94% of the plan speed during the peak evening hours, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says fixed-line NBN broadband services have held up well in May and June despite the increased demand.
NBN speeds and performance declined as Australians followed social distancing instructions to stay home due to COVID-19, but picked up following measures by NBN Co and streaming providers, according to the competition regulator, the ACCC.
The chair of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) Rod Sims says the competition watchdog is focused on the critical role of the communications sector during the current COVID-19 crisis and the delivery of better services while maintaining longer term competition and efficiency in the market.
Singtel Optus has again recorded the highest score or 89.9% in the ACCC's Measuring Broadband Australia quarterly report, a compilation and comparison of broadband scores across the country.
Underperforming broadband services are still a problem for some consumers, with a newly publish report revealing that 12.4% of consumers continue to experience underperforming services that “rarely come close to reaching their maximum plan speed”.
Most NBN users experience less than one outage of 30 seconds or more a day, but Optus customers on average had to suffer through more than 1.5 outages each day, according to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission's fifth report on NBN speeds.
Fixed-line NBN customers are benefitting from competition among Internet service providers to perform well in the ACCC's speed tests, though some consumers continue to get much lower speeds than others on the same plan.
The communications and telecommunications sector, including major telcos like Telstra, was under the glare of the spotlight of the competition watchdog, the ACCC, in the 2017-2018 financial year, when it secured nearly $170 million in penalties for breaches of competition and consumer laws.
Small broadband provider Aussie Broadband has come out on top in the second report from the ACCC's broadband speed monitoring program, achieving 88.3% of download speed and 89.1% of upload speeds for a plan during the busy period.
