The ACCC has yesterday crowned the best NBN provider in its sixth report on real-world NBN speeds, with TPG once again taking out the crown this time round.

The sixth report on real-world NBN speeds from the ACCC found that internet providers are now delivering between 80.4% and 86.7% of maximum plan speeds during peak usage hours of 7pm – 11pm.

Lets take a look at the results found in the report:

TPG came out on top with its customers were have found to receive 86.7% of their plan’s maximum speeds during busy periods, putting the company to the top ranking in report.

The ACCC’s sampling methodology takes in more customers and more providers than before, testing the speeds offered by the nine major ISP companies such as Optus, Telstra, TPG, Aussie Broadband, Dodo, Exetel, iiNet, iPrimus, MyRepublic and TPG. It is worth noting that ACCC speed testing program sample size still isn’t huge, though, as it only covers 1095 NBN connections.

So while there is a possibility for a certain margin of error with this data, it does show that our major Internet Service Providers or ISP’s are doing quite well when it comes to NBN speeds.

That’s interesting because everything you hear is about how slow the NBN is, but these numbers look impressive.

ACCC should try Pacific Pines 4211 might find speeds less than 50% of max according to Telstra techs because the copper line damaged in some way. They say Way Station speed 25mbps, node 15mbps pit outside of the complex where I live 7 mbps. They also say the speed with NBN will be faster than ADSL but never close to advertised irrespective if ISP. NBN to me is a scam…go to the store order a kg of something and get 1/2kg but pay for a full kg. Go to the ISP and they duck shove over to the NBN.


I’m still far better off than the old ADSL days, which was 11Mbps to now 34Mbps speeds. And a very reliable connection.
