The Commerce Commission announced today it has selected TrueNet to conduct testing to measure the quality of the broadband services being provided in New Zealand.
“The TrueNet testing is in addition to the Epitiro testing we are already doing, and is more oriented towards measuring the kind of performance that is delivered to people’s homes,” said Dr Ross Patterson, Telecommunications Commissioner.
The Commission will publish reports showing the results of the testing. The frequency of these reports is yet to be confirmed.
TrueNet is looking for more volunteers to take part in their broadband testing. For more information and to volunteer, visit their website at www.truenet.co.nz/get-involved-become-volunteer-tester
The testing is conducted under Section 9A of the Telecommunications Act 2001, which empowers the Commission to conduct inquiries, reviews and studies into any matter relating to the telecommunications industry for the long-term benefit of end-users of telecommunications services within New Zealand.
TrueNet is a New Zealand based company that measures and reports on broadband performance in New Zealand. It is a joint venture between the open source information technology company, Catalyst IT, and Jonette Consulting, a company specialising in broadband reporting analysis.
