Biggest evening dip in NBN speeds seen on 100Mbps plans

Users of 100/40Mbps plans on the National Broadband Network (NBN) are seeing an almost 6Mbps dip in their evening speeds according to the latest instalment of the Measuring Broadband Australia report from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) covering November.

The report states that the decrease begins after 5 pm, is at its strongest at 9 pm, and is back to normal at 11 pm.

During November, 260,000 download speed tests were completed on 1,212 whiteboxes, with almost 70% of tests hitting 90% of maximum plan speeds, this represented a jump of 5 percentage points on the previous report.

The ACCC also repeated its complaints that no user could achieve more than 95.6% of maximum plan speeds, using it as justification for the ridiculous situation of getting NBN to overdimension its layer 2 plans to allow the ACCC’s layer 7 tests to hit 100%.

Broken down by telco download speeds, Optus maintained its spot at the top, followed by TPG, Extel, Aussie Broadband, iiNet, Telstra, MyRepublic, and Vocus-owned Dodo and iPrimus.

However, once the ACCC excluded underperforming connections — which represented 11% of its survey sample, and 95% of which use fibre-to-the-node (FttN) technology — the telco pecking order was Optus, iiNet, Telstra, TPG, Aussie Broadband, Exetel, MyRepublic, and Dodo and iPrimus.

Across NBN connection technologies, download speeds on fibre-to-the-premises (FttP), fibre-to-the-curb (FttC), and hybrid fibre-coaxial (HFC) were sitting between 90.5% to 91.6% of plan speed, but FttN was far behind at 82%. Once the underperforming connections were excluded, FttN jumped to 89.4% of plan speeds.

“Consumers with underperforming connections are encouraged to get in touch with their RSPs, and ask whether a technician may be able to fix their connection issues,” ACCC chair Rod Sims said.

“Otherwise, they should be able to move to a cheaper plan with top speeds their connection can actually provide.”

In terms of latency, FttC slightly beat FttP with 9.9 milliseconds versus 10.6ms, with HFC on 13ms, and FttN on 13.9ms.

For the test related to average web page loading time, Exetel claimed top spot on 2.4 seconds, with Telstra and Aussie Broadband tied at 2.6 seconds, followed by Dodo and iPrimus, iiNet, Optus, TPG, and MyRepublic.

Overnight, the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman (TIO) released its October to December second quarter phone and internet complaints report, which showed overall complaints were up a mere 1% compared to last year.

“When looking at the half year on half year comparison it’s pleasing to see there was no significant increase in overall complaint volumes,” TIO Judi Jones said.

“Fault and connection complaints about services delivered over the National Broadband Network continue their downward trend. ‘Missed appointments’ has dropped out of the top 10 issues, so consumers are telling us it’s no longer the critical issue for them.

Jones added the results reflected ongoing efforts to address issues over previous years.

The Australian Communications Consumer Action Network noted that the TIO had reported an increase in small business issues, and added that business owners should ensure they are on business grade plans to minimise disruption.

Passive Optical Networking Tibit Communications Raises $25 Million

Intel VP and Intel Capital senior managing director Dave Flanagan pointed out that the Tibit MicroPlug technology showcases the power of …
  • Petaluma, California-based startup Petaluma, California-based startup announced it raised $25 million in Series B funding

Tibit Communications — a Petaluma, California-based startup that is developing next-generation access devices for Passive Optical Networking (PON) — has announced the completion of $25 million in Series B funding led by Intel Capital and including two new investors Swisscom Ventures and AJU IB Investment. The Tibit MicroPlug OLT (Optical Line Terminal) solution is considered a revolutionary departure from legacy fiber access solutions that are traditionally part of large and proprietary chassis with multiple internal switching layers.

“Tibit’s MicroPlug OLT and cloud-based management solutions disrupt the PON market in specifically the areas that carriers are looking to unlock on their networks – interoperability, solution disaggregation, and network virtualization. We see their solution as uniquely positioned to help carriers enable next-generation architectures for access and management solutions,” said Swisscom Ventures partner and Tibit board observer Pär Lange.

Tibit fits all PON Layer 1 and 2 functionality inside the space of a transceiver optics case that plugs seamlessly into standards-based and commercially-available switches. This allows carriers a very flexible and cost-effective deployment for fiber access. And the elimination of unnecessary management layers within the OLT equipment itself further enables PON management to be virtualized and moved into the carrier’s cloud architecture.

“Tibit creates data center economics for the PON access market by making PON a simple Ethernet component and a catalog item for Ethernet switch suppliers for markets like Korea that are pioneering next-generation broadband speeds,” added AJU IB Investment partner Michael Jeon.


Intel VP and Intel Capital senior managing director Dave Flanagan pointed out that the Tibit MicroPlug technology showcases the power of virtualization as it provides “more flexibility, higher density, and lower cost by deploying PON in general-purpose Ethernet switching equipment and management solutions, which can be entirely virtualized on Intel processor-based servers.”

“We are pleased with the caliber of investors we have attracted to invest in our revolutionary pluggable PON technology,” explained Tibit president and CEO Richard Stanfield. “This includes the Series B participation of Tibit’s existing investors, Intel Capital’s lead role in this round, and now the entry of the investment arm of global telecommunications leader Swisscom Ventures and Korea’s leading venture capital investor AJU IB Investment.”
