ACCC REPORT IS GOOD NEWS FOR AUSTRALIANS

Sydney, 29 March 2021 - Communications Alliance welcomed today’s Measuring Broadband Australia report published by the ACCC, which shows that broadband speeds are strong and getting stronger.

“This quarter’s report showed the highest overall speeds since the beginning of the program in 2018,” said Communications Alliance CEO, John Stanton.

“This reflects the ongoing work of nbn and retail service providers to provide Australians with high speed and reliable internet access.”

“We are also pleased to see that these reports continue to show customers are receiving the speeds advertised by their RSPs.”

Stanton continued, saying “while Australians use broadband in many ways – to work, access education, and stay connected to friends and family – the ACCC’s reporting on access to streaming services such as Netflix show that customers are also able to easily access entertainment services via all plans.”
