Published in Networking

The Australian Government says it has in place a number of initiatives to address the issue of high, and often opaque, charges for international mobile roaming, but it has stopped short of seeking either bilateral or multilateral regulation, despite a parliamentary enquiry calling on it to do so, and despite the OECD suggesting that regulation is the only solution.

ITU's 4G 'Beauty contest' gets underway

Forget all those claims from WiMAX and cellular operators bragging about their 4G wireless technologies. No 4G technologies exist today. The International Telecommunication Union has just started evaluating candidate technologies for the global 4G mobile wireless broadband standard. It and expects to announce, in October 2010 those chosen to qualify as "true 4G technologies" - and that’s official!

The CTOs of some of the word's leading IT&T vendors - including Cisco and Microsoft - and some of the largest telcos - including BT, NTT and Telstra - have joined forces in a bid to rationalise what they see as an excess of different, and sometimes competing, organisations developing IT&T standards.
