Grant to strengthen consumer voice in telecommunications

The Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Stephen Conroy, today announced funding to assist in the establishment of a new telecommunications consumer peak body.

“The Government wants to give consumers a more powerful and effective voice in the development of telecommunications policy,” Senator Conroy said.

“To demonstrate our commitment to strengthening the consumer voice I have provided a grant of $87,000 to the Consumers’ Telecommunications Network (CTN) on behalf of the working group of consumer representation bodies.” (Gov Media Release)

Maybe we should give the money to whirlpool.net.au? I mean, the whirlpool broadband community is visited more often than either Telstra or Optus sites and is considered the most influential telecommunications resource by Hitwise. Makes ya think…
