Australia broadband data demand still higher than pre-COVID-19 baseline - study

Monday 13 July 2020 | 09:11 CET | News
Data demand on NBN's main wholesale access service remains above the pre-COVID-19 baseline as Australians continue to rely on the NBN to access work, education and social events, according to a report from NBN Co, the company building and operating Australia's broadband access network. The study found that, for the week between 29 June and 5 July, peak download throughput during the busy evening period jumped 24 percent to 13.7 Tbps on the main NBN wholesale service, compared to the last week of February, which NBN measures as its pre-COVID-19 baseline.
