The ACMA yesterday released its proposals for major changes to all aspects of telephone numbering in both the short (12 month) and medium (five year) terms. It prompted a number of headlines warning of imminent exhaustion of mobile phone numbers, but that was not something of concern to the ACMA.
Optus has formally launched its femtocell offering, first introduced as a commercial pilot with limited availability in April, under the name Optus 3G Home Zone.
Rather than having to take Optus to court the ACCC has used the new consumer protection laws to hit Optus with 27 penalties totalling $178,200 for making false and misleading representations in its advertisements for its 'Max Cap' plans. Optus says it eleccted to pay the fines, without admitting guilt, rather than contest the matter in court.
