From time to time I like to do a speed test on my internet connection, I’m proud to say mine is pretty nice right now.
This is the result on my connection, it is on a Telstra Wholesale ADSL2+ port through Internode, in regional Northern New South Wales. (Zone 3 Exchange)
South Australian based ISP Internode has announced that itself & a group of 9 other ISP’s are partitioning the ACCC to compel Telstra to provide wholesale ADSL2+ access.
The main points of argument are as follows:
- That Telstra provides untenably high wholesale transmission pricing
- Telstra also claims exchanges are full and there is no spare space in cases were this is not true
- Telstra delays approval to access exchanges to install DSLAMs
Internode leads ISP bid for access to Telstra ADSL2+
The Letter to The ACCC
After years of being a stubon little sook, Telstra has finally begun the process of enabling the ADSL2+ capabilities of it’s DSLAMs. In a move that is sure to raise the eye brow of it’s competitors Telstra has begun to offer it’s retail customers ADSL2+. My personal opinion is that anyway silly enough and disparate enough for an ADSL2+ service that is restricted to 20MBits/512Kbits is pretty in for a rude shock when they get there bill.
