ACCC TAKES DIRECT SWING AT FIBRE TO THE NODE
The ACCC has today taken a direct swing at the performance of Fibre to the Node following the release of its latest broadband speed monitoring report.
In a not so subtle statement accompanying the report the ACCC stated:
“many high speed fibre to the node (FTTN) connections still don’t come close to performing as promised. The results show that about a quarter of those consumers on FTTN connections, who are paying for high-speed 50 Mbps and 100 Mbps plans, still did not receive anywhere near their full plan speeds, at any time.”
The ACCC Chairman, Mr Sims, went on to say:
“This Measuring Broadband Australia data clearly shows that too many consumers with FTTN connections are not receiving the speeds they are paying for.”
Why is a $51 billion network still not delivering the speeds Australians are paying for?
