National Internet Measurement Infrastructure
The National Internet Measurement Infrastructure (NIMI) programme will cease from 1 February 2017.
NIMI was implemented to monitor the Internet Service Providers' (ISPs) fixed residential ADSL and Cable broadband services, with particular focus on the speeds that end-users were experiencing. With the rollout of Nationwide Broadband Network (NBN), proliferation of higher speed fibre services, and a variety of broadband packages offering speeds of up to 2Gbps, there is no longer a need for the programme and it will cease from 1 February 2017.
The final set of performance charts report the measurements taken from September to November 2016. The charts focus on four key performance metrics: Download Throughput, Upload Throughput, Latency and Packet Loss. Click here for the performance charts

Question: NIMI has been useful in measuring the broadband speed. Why is it ceased?
Answer: NIMI was designed to monitor ISPs’ fixed residential ADSL and Cable broadband services. As most consumers have adopted fibre broadband plans with higher speeds, the setup for the current NIMI programme is not optimal or effective in measuring user experience on higher speed plans.
Question: Will there be a replacement for the NIMI programme?
Answer: IMDA will assess the different tools, technologies and methodologies with a view to more effectively measure user experience on higher speed broadband networks.
