NBN ISPs perform the same, says Linton

The outspoken chief executive of ISP Exetel has rejected claims that higher priced ISPs like Internode will be able to provide a better quality of network performance on the emerging National Broadband Network infrastructure, maintaining that all ISPs on the NBN will be offering an “identical” experience.

Last week, both Exetel and Internode released their initial pricing plans for commercial services on the NBN. As with current ADSL broadband pricing, Internode’s prices were substantially higher in a number of areas, leading some in the industry to speculate that the extra costs would be sunk into traditional areas of strength for Internode — such as network performance and customer service.

However, in a post on his blog this morning, Exetel CEO John Linton rejected the idea that the networks operated by different ISPs could perform differently on the NBN fibre infrastructure being rolled out around Australia.
