The NBN continues to cop flak over performance issues, but Telstra's NBN services lead the latest Netflix ISP speed index.
Research conducted by a group including scientists at RMIT’s School of Science and the University of Wollongong has developed groundbreaking new technology which could allow 100-times-faster internet by harnessing twisted light beams to carry more data and process it faster.
Telstra has gone all out to secure the loyalty of its half a million cable customers on their standard cable speed tier, giving them — at no additional cost — a boost in maximum download speeds from 30Mbps to a maximum of 50Mbps.
TPG-owned Internet service providers iiNet and Internode are compensating thousands of their customers for engaging in misleading or deceptive conduct by promoting and offering NBN plans with maximum speeds that could not be delivered.
The Australian Greens have labelled a report into the future of the national broadband network, which found Australia’s Internet needs over the decade would conveniently peak below the 50Mbps threshold the NBN Co is claiming to provide, as “sloppy, unfounded and deliberately vague”.
Many Australian small businesses are not confident in the government’s ability to deliver the national broadband network within the next two years as promised. And to compound their lack of confidence, SMBs are worried about being left behind in today’s digital economy race as a result of slow Internet speeds.
TPG continues to ramp up its National Broadband Network offerings and telecoms market expansion with the latest launch of a new NBN50 plan with an unlimited data offer and a higher tier speed of 50Mbps.
Internet Australia has weighed into the debate about consumers being misled on NBN Internet speeds by telcos, calling on all ISPs to follow Telstra and Optus and reimburse misled FttN customers.
Internet service provider MyRepublic says newly commissioned research has found that three in four (76%) Australians want speeds of 1Gbps or more, with two in three people (66% ) claiming it would have a positive effect on their work and leisure time.
New Zealand telco Spark has switched on 4.5G in the iconic tourist spot of Queenstown, with the town becoming the first in the country to have the fastest mobile data services.
Laptops are being put aside in favour of mobile phones by Australian self-employed women to run their businesses, according to a new study that reveals faster and more reliable Internet speeds are also on top of womens' lists of technology they want to make doing business easier.
The latest report on the State of the Internet by Akamai has prompted a strong statement from NBN Co, warning that the report shows again the National Broadband Network is not only critical to bridging the digital divide in Australia, but also confirms the need to complete the rollout of the network as soon as possible.
Singapore-based Internet service provider (ISP) MyRepublic will officially launch in the Australian market next week with its first unlimited Internet data plans.
The consumer watchdog, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, has partially blamed the telecommunications industry’s own advertising for contributing to the unrealistic expectations of Internet speeds by consumers.
Netflix has updated its Australian prime-time use ISP ratings, and it is a little bit of a shock.
