Telecommunications industry group Communications Alliance has called on the government to hold off on taking any enforcement action against telcos that are unable to fully comply with the data retention regime by April 2017.
A group that brings together Australian businesses, researchers and government agencies with the aim of helping the country realise the benefits of the Internet of Things has formally launched as an independent not-for-profit organisation.
A draft document setting out whole-of-government guidelines for the use of Section 313(3) of the Telecommunications Act 1997 contains some useful material for agencies but also has some significant flaws, according to industry group Communications Alliance.
It’s close to a year since the Coalition government with the support of Labor pushed the data retention legislation through parliament, and the regime kicked in in October. However, telcos remain in the dark about how much funding they will receive to compensate for the cost of implementing the regime, according to Communications Alliance.
