Broadband performance is stable across almost all the plans and providers the Measuring Broadband New Zealand program monitors, with 99% of Fibre 300, Fibre Max and HFC Max plans able to “comfortably” handle four simultaneous high-definition Netflix streams.
Telstra has announced it is raising the cost of its monthly mobile plans by $3 to $4, citing rising inflation as the driver.
The Australian Labor Party's pledge during the election campaign to offer 90% of broadband users in the country higher speeds will not have the intended effect unless the price of the technology is lowered, the independent telecommunications analyst Paul Budde says.
Aussie Broadband has been recognised as Australia’s best broadband provider at a telco industry awards event.
The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced that it is ready to authorise more than US$640 million through the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund to fund new broadband deployments in 26 states bringing service to nearly 250,000 locations.
Australia's biggest telco, Telstra, and OneWeb, a low earth orbit (LEO) satellite communications company, have announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to explore new solutions for improved digital connectivity across Australia and the Asia Pacific region.
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 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.
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."
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.
If you want to experience 5G at maximum speeds, you'll need to do so using a smartphone capable of accessing 5G mmWave networks. In Australia, the only phone that's capable, for now, is the Google Pixel 6 Pro, although that will surely change in 2022 and beyond.
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.
Fixed wireless access subscriptions, both 4G and 5G, will reach 473 million globally by 2030, the technology analyst firm Counterpoint Research predicts, which means that it will service 36% of fixed broadband users across the globe.
New Zealand broadband provider Spark has announced a waiving of data overage charges for all users who are on data-capped fixed and wireless broadband plans.
The Commonwealth Bank of Australia has taken a 25% stake in two retail service providers that resell NBN services and says it will offer discounted plans to its customers through these two companies.
NBN Co has realised a discussion paper to industry on proposed changes to the Special Access Undertaking (SAU) lodged with the ACCC. The SAU sets out the framework that governs the terms on which the company supplies services to the industry. The proposed variation includes options to change to pricing with only the Access Virtual Circuit (AVC)component, dropping the contraversial Connectivity Virtual Circuit (CVC) component. It also adds all the current Governments Multi-Technology Mix access technologies, such as Fibre-to-the-Building, Node, Curb (FTTB, FTTN, FTTC) and Hybrid Fibre Coax (HFC).
More than 500,000 Australians moved to faster NBN plans in the first quarter of 2021, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says in its latest Wholesale Market Indicators Report.
Since COVID-19 restrictions were introduced in March last year, more online Australians have increased their use of telehealth consultations and video conferencing/calling.
If you need lots of mobile data because your wired NBN isn't fast enough, isn't available or there are other issues, then Telstra now offers an impressive 400GB of data over 3G, 4G and 5G networks for $85 per month.
The company rolling out Australia's national broadband network has reported revenue of $3.5 billion for the first nine months of the financial year 2020-21, with no breakdown offered for the third quarter alone.
