ACCC to report on actual broadband speeds: Coulton
Federal Member for Parkes Mark Coulton welcomes the announcement of a new program that will give consumers greater information on the speeds and experience they can expect from fixed-line broadband services delivered over the National Broadband Network (NBN).
Mr Coulton said the Broadband Performance Monitoring and Reporting (BPMR) program, to be implemented by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), will source performance data from around 4,000 volunteer customers of retail service providers across the country. 
He said the program will provide consumers with clear and independent information of the actual speeds being delivered by various retailers. 
By collecting and publishing information about the speed and reliability of broadband packages, consumers will be better placed to choose a plan that is right for them. It will also encourage retailers to compete on the quality of their broadband plans.
Performance information will be made publicly available for the benefit of all Australians. 
Mr Coulton said the ACCC will shortly be recruiting householders using the NBN fixed-line network to take part in the program. 
Further information about how to sign up will be available on the ACCC website shortly.
