We're looking for volunteers for our broadband performance monitoring program, which will help provide consumers with accurate, independent and comparable information about broadband speeds and performance.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is calling on thousands of Australians to volunteer to be part of a new program that will measure and compare broadband speeds across the country.
The program will install hardware-based devices in around 4,000 households over four years, beginning with around 2,000 volunteers in the first year. These devices will perform remote testing to determine typical speeds on fixed-line NBN services at various times throughout the day.
