Currently, the satellite internet network and the Telstra’s Next-G network are the two known approaches to providing internet access in rural parts of Australia. While both
networks solve the same problem, they rely on significantly different mechanisms to enable internet to reach across the end users. In this paper the Quality of Service (QoS) of both these internet networks will be compared with our developed test scripts. Test scripts were developed to measure the download speed, round-trip-time and website loading performance of the networks in real-time environments. Addition tests were run using Telstra’s ADSL network and the USQ campus network for comparison purposes. With the achieved test results, we hope to be able to advise internet users in rural Australia on the most appropriate network to use that best benefit their lifestyles.
