Monday 18 May 2020 | 10:32 CET | News
NBN Co, the company building and operating Australia's broadband access network, reports it continues to record high demand for both data and new service connections as Australians use the NBN for their work, study, telehealth, online shopping, social and entertainment needs. The report shows that, for the period between 4 and 10 May, data demand on the NBN's main wholesale access service remained well above the pre-COVID-19 baseline. The weekly report shows the highest throughput recorded in a week during daytime business hours, early evening hours and busy evening hours.
