Volunteers wanted for a Commerce Commission study into broadband performance
Once again the Commerce Commission are looking for volunteers to help them gather an accurate picture of how New Zealand’s broadband is performing.They need volunteers from all parts of the country and on all types of broadband technologies, plans, and different providers to take part. However, this year they are specifically looking for volunteers who are Vodafone customers on Ultra Fast HFC and Skinny customers on fixed wireless.
Volunteers that are selected will be provided with a ‘Whitebox’ (similar to a modem) to plug in at home.The Whitebox performs automated tests on home internet performance at different times of the day. Volunteers will also have access to their own personal internet performance information, which may help diagnose problems and improve their home broadband performance.
