The ACMA has kicked of a major enquiry into customer service in the telecoms industry with release of the enquiry's terms of reference, a consultation paper and call for "the broadest possible input on the problems telecommunications customers are experiencing with customer service and complaints-handling."

Communications Alliance has set up a steering group to review the Telecommunications Consumer Protections (TCP) Code that regulates the behaviour of service providers in billing, credit management, complaint handling, customer contracts and the information contained in advertising.
