Sydney Ranks Top 10 for Technology

Sydney has been ranked the 10th best city in the world for embracing technology and empowering entrepreneurs, beating the likes of Tokyo and New York.

Australians Downloading More for Less

 

Data usage is at an all-time high according to the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission. A report from the 2014-15 period revealed a 40% spike in data consumption on NBN and DSL services, while mobile data rose 35% over the same period. 

The ACCC’s annual report indicated an increased competition in the telco sector was still driving prices down, having dropped 0.5% in 2014-15, significantly less than the years previous.

“While a smaller reduction than in the previous eight years, which has seen a 3.3 per cent fall each year on average, this indicates that competition on factors other than price has been a feature of the market,” said ACCC Chairman, Rod Sims.

 

“Given this, the ACCC will continue to take a particular interest in ensuring consumers receive accurate information about network performance."

“Consumers are reaping the benefits of competition in the form of increased data allowances, new services, and lower prices.”

“Consistent with the trend in recent years, consumer demand for data is continuing to increase and is affecting both fixed and mobile networks.”

The most recent increase in data consumption has been attributed largely to the introduction of on demand video streaming, or the 'Netflix Effect'. MyNetFone recently increased the data allowances on our broadband plans to cater for the growing demand.

During the same 2014-15 period data allowances were increased by over 70% for DSL internet services and more than doubled for post-paid mobile services.
