The American news agency Bloomberg has claimed that Chinese telecommunications vendor Huawei used malicious code to spy on Optus in 2012, a claim that the telco has denied. The story in question is replete with dubious assertions, risible claims and quotes that do not match what the reporters say they do.
The COVID-19 pandemic has helped drive rapid growth in Australians' online activity, increasing data downloads and heightening demand for high-speed internet plans, according to recently released research from the ACMA.
Australians are paying more for their broadband and mobile phone services than they were a year ago but are receiving faster NBN speeds and more data allowances in their mobile plans in return, the ACCC’s 2020-21 Communications Market Report shows.
The ACCC report that consumers on NBN fixed-line plans experienced download speeds averaging 97.2% of plan speed and upload speeds of 84.9% during the busy evening hours of 7-11pm in September 2021, the ACCC’s latest Measuring Broadband Australia report reveals. These results are in line with the previous May 2021 report.
Finnish telecommunications vendor Nokia and Bell Canada have conducted a 25G PON fibre broadband technology test in North America at Bell’s Advanced Technical Lab in Montréal, Québec.
The Australian Labor Party has announced it will provide free broadband for a year to 30,000 homes which have no Internet connections, as part of its broadband policy for the upcoming election.
Based on the reported leaked Labor NBN policy, the Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, Paul Fletcher issued a statement.
Labor's announcement that it would provide $2.4 billion for an additional 1.5 million homes to be provided with fibre if it were elected to office has been dismissed as "a continuation of the muddling-on process seen over the last decade."
The final cost of the NBN is likely to end up being in the $90-billion range, a figure that was once claimed in 2013 by Malcolm Turnbull as what it would cost if Labor continued with its plan, a well-known independent telecommunications analyst says.
NBN Co revealed the latest list of suburbs and towns where an additional 200,000 homes and businesses are set to benefit from the extension of fibre deeper into communities.
Malcolm Turnbull has some explaining to do about the costs of the NBN this morning, after Guardian Australia reported figures hidden in a report commissioned by him showed a full-fibre NBN or a multi-technology mix would have cost about the same.
NBN Co are taking the initiative during the ACCC's National Scams Awareness Week, November 8 to 12, to run a series of special free webinars, in partnership with ASCCA and other national organisations, to help Australians get 'ScamFit' as NBN and other company impersonation scams go on the rise - and losses by everyday Aussies grow, too.
Telstra has announced a 5G home and business Internet plan with 1TB of data per month for $85 with no lock-in contracts.
The ACMA reports it has accepted a new court-enforceable undertaking (EU) from Telstra requiring it to continue to implement new measures to support ongoing compliance with rules designed to ensure consumers have a smooth migration to the NBN.
In the event NBN needs to restore services during an emergency, NBN says it will work closely with power companies and the emergency services and work to restore services as soon as it is safe to do so.
Aussie Broadband provided a trading update for the quarter ending 30 September 2021. Overall active broadband connections increased by 44,932 or 11% QoQ, business broadband connections increased by 4,639 or 13% QoQ, and mobile services increased by 3,841 or 15% QoQ.
Australian Telco, More, today unveiled a consumer facing re-brand to align with its increased focus beyond the company’s traditional B2B customer base into the B2C market.
Further investments to promote greater choice and availability for mobile phone users as well as improving the reliability and affordability of telecommunications services are vital to ensuring regional Australians are guaranteed access to essential telecommunications services, according to the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN).
TPG Telecom and Vodafone, two firms that merged last year, have both started offering 5G home Internet plans, in what is a welcome development for those stuck on the NBN.
In the last couple of weeks we have witnessed assertive correspondence between the industry and NBN Co. Here is a summary what has taken place and what it means.
