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.

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.
