Australia: Telecoms new consumer peak body


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…
