Next release of figures from the Choice Broadband testing:
Still not many recommended ones in the pack yet. In fact quite a disappointing list of not recommended. Also of interest in the results is the recommended ones ie those with a score of 80% + are all only 25/5 Mbps plans and no higher speed plans reach that level. Maybe a reflection of the suspected pooooooor levels of CVC purchased by RSPs, it would be interesting to see what a substantial CVC increase would achieve.
From the email I got it is now offering for users/participants to register for individual results (I have registered my interest).
They still want more people to register for joining the test program so please let your friends, relatives and social contacts know about the program.
From the email:
The latest set of results measuring Australia’s broadband performance have been published today.
CHOICE’s broadband performance leaderboard
Each month CHOICE provides a new set of data that reflects the latest broadband performance in homes across Australia and the latest results are now live.
Access to other results
Our initial focus is to use the power of all of your devices together to help CHOICE produce aggregated monthly results. However, a number of you have asked about access to your own individual results. We’re working towards seeing if we can make this possible, so register your interest below if you’re keen on seeing your own broadband performance data.
This is a massive undertaking because we need 1000’s of these devices out there in order to increase the accuracy of the broadband performance results. With almost 2000 devices in homes today, consider this a beta, and a taste of what’s to come.
Lastly, a shout out to your mates, friends or families to get on board. Share the link below and encourage them to register - especially if their broadband service is fibre-to-the-node (FttN) or hybrid fibre coaxial (HFC). It’s free, remember.
