Australia's NBN broadband services from iiNet, Optus, Telstra and TPG are now delivering between 80 and just over 90 percent of the maximum plan speeds in the evening busy hours, according to a report from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). The study also found these busy hour speeds (between 19:00 hours and 23:00 hours) are now only marginally below typical speeds at other times. The study also found that 5 percent of services tested operated at less than 50 percent of their maximum plan speeds.
