The consumer watchdog, the ACCC, says telecommunications customers now have greater safeguards when accessing Telstra’s voice and broadband services while the telco progressively migrates the services to the National Broadband Network (NBN) as it is rolled out.
New Zealand’s largest telco, Spark, has been hit by a massive spike in faults on its broadband and landline services due to severe weather damage on the ageing Chorus copper line network.
The head of Internet Australia wants the telecommunications Universal Service Obligation (USO) to be extended to include the right to data access and has called on the Australian Government to change the USO legislation covering broadband services.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
