TPG has taken out the third Nationwide Broadband Community (NBN) speed-monitoring report, with MyRepublic again coming last throughout most classes.
Based on the Australian Competitors and Client Fee (ACCC) report [PDF], TPG delivered 88.7 p.c of its most plan speeds general and 88.four p.c throughout busy hours for downloads.
It was adopted by Aussie Broadband — the winner of the previous report — at 87 p.c general and 85.eight p.c in busy hours; iiNet, at 85.9 p.c general and 84.eight p.c in busy hours; Optus, at 84.9 p.c general and 84 p.c in busy hours; Telstra, at 83.9 p.c general and 83.5 p.c in busy hours; and MyRepublic, at 83.5 p.c general and 82.1 p.c in busy hours.
TPG likewise scored highest on common add speeds, offering 89.2 p.c of its most plan speeds general and 89.1 p.c throughout busy hours.
Aussie Broadband was ranked second for add speeds, offering 87.eight p.c general and 87.5 p.c throughout busy hours; iiNet was third, offering 87.1 p.c each general and through busy hours; MyRepublic got here fourth, at 85.three p.c general and 84.6 p.c in busy hours; Telstra was fifth, offering 83.2 p.c general and 83.1 p.c in busy hours; and Optus got here in final, with 82.eight p.c general and 82.7 p.c in busy hours.
“Trade says it’s working laborious to contact prospects whose NBN connections aren’t capable of ship the utmost speeds of their plan,” ACCC Chair Rod Sims stated on Monday morning.
“We be aware NBN Co has reported that congestion has elevated barely in latest months. Our outcomes counsel that ISPs not featured on this report could possibly be contributing to this, as the general outcomes featured on this MBA report don’t present an upward pattern in congestion.”
Telstra once more had the bottom latency, at 12.1 milliseconds general and a mean internet page-loading time of two.four seconds. TPG’s general latency was 12.4ms; Aussie Broadband’s was 13.5ms; Optus’ was 14.1ms; iiNet’s was 16.2ms; and MyRepublic’s was 17.1ms.
Common page-loading time for iiNet and MyRepublic was 2.6 seconds; Aussie Broadband clocked 2.7 seconds; Optus three seconds; and TPG three.2 seconds.
The “very busy hours” metric — which takes the fifth-lowest hourly common pace measure through the 120 busy hours of the interval — once more noticed poor outcomes, with Telstra flattening the best rating by offering simply 71.9 p.c of most plan speeds.
Aussie Broadband adopted, offering 69.three p.c of most plan speeds throughout very busy hours, then TPG, at 69.2 p.c; Optus, at 68.four p.c; iiNet, at 66.9 p.c; and MyRepublic, at 61.1 p.c.

Aussie Broadband co-founder and MD Phillip Britt final week instructed ZDNet that the speed-monitoring reviews — along side NBN’s Focus on 50 wholesale pricing discount and the mandate that RSPs advertise typical evening speeds — is “actually what cleaned up the massive boys behaving badly” when it comes to provisioning sufficient connectivity digital circuit (CVC) capability.
“Finally, they weren’t provisioning sufficient CVC; they mainly had been going to get caught with their pants down,” Britt instructed ZDNet.
“NBN wanted to repair the client expertise. NBN finally blinked first, slightly than the suppliers provisioning extra bandwidth.
“It eroded our aggressive benefit in a single day, as a result of we had been provisioning sufficient bandwidth, and all of a sudden everybody was on this stage taking part in area from a bandwidth perspective … we have nonetheless come out on high [of the second ACCC report], however the entire congestion factor was an enormous promoting level for us, and prospects had been churning to us in droves due to that. The churn in market today will not be as sturdy, I believe due to that.”
The ACCC’s first fixed-line broadband speed monitoring report, printed in March, had adopted the patron watchdog forcing Telstra, Optus, TPG, iiNet, Internode, Dodo, iPrimus, and Commander to compensate tens of hundreds of shoppers for not offering them with the NBN speeds they had been paying for.
The ACCC remains to be seeking volunteers for the broadband speed-monitoring program with a view to enhance the pool of information.
The ACCC has additionally stated it will want a further AU$6 million in government funding to increase its speed-monitoring program to fixed-wireless companies.
