The parliamentary committee charged with scrutinising the government’s data retention legislation is unlikely to gain access to the most detailed attempt to assess the cost of the scheme.
Recording data that will allow IP addresses to be matched to individual customers will involve Vodafone storing petabytes of information it would otherwise be unlikely to keep, the telco has said.
The parliamentary committee overseeing data retention legislation has requested more evidence that companies are unclear as to whether they will be forced to keep customer data under the government's proposed data retention scheme.
Telecommunications providers shouldn't be forced to retain the IP addresses assigned to their customers for 24 months, Vodafone has argued.
The union representing journalists and a group of 12 news organisations have expressed alarm at elements of the government's proposed mandatory data retention scheme, with the Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance (MEAA) recommending that the bill be ditched altogether.
