Earlier this year, our Internet Service Provider (ISP) members were granted eligibility to join the ACCC’s broadband monitoring program. Prior to this, only larger ISPs could participate, providing them with a competitive, marketable advantage.
Following our successful appeal to the ACCC, several members have become eligible to join the program, and we encourage our members to do so. This program provides the opportunity for greater internet performance transparency, allowing smaller ISPs to participate actively and be included in the MBA reports. It further enables members to include speed and technical quality in marketing collateral alongside the bigger players.
For a detailed explanation of this program, check out our 2020 event Life Under Lockdown: how good is our internet.
If you would like to join the program, please contact the ACCC directly at BroadbandPerformance@accc.gov.au
