ASX-listed Nitro Software, a firm that had its origins in Melbourne and offers a service to create, edit and sign PDFs and digital documents, has begun a campaign it says will make electronic signatures a permanent feature of the Australian business landscape.
The Australian Government has accepted six of the 14 recommendations made by the 5G inquiry conducted by the House Standing Committee on Communications and the Arts, assessing the deployment, adoption and application of 5G in Australia.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has announced a pause on its inquiries examining both NBN entry-level access pricing and wholesale service standards, to allow the communications sector to focus on its response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Federal Government has announced a sum of $9 million to build public confidence in the safety of telecommunications networks, presumably in reaction to the large number of submissions to a 5G inquiry that expressed fears about the alleged health hazards of 5G networks.
The competition watchdog, the ACCC, has commenced a public inquiry as it considers the terms and conditions under which other telecommunications companies can use Telstra’s fixed-line services.
Telstra's operations and those of other telcos as well will come under scrutiny if a move by a Centre Alliance senator for an inquiry into telecommunications security and stability gets up.
The federal government will conduct an inquiry into the outage suffered by Telstra last week that led to problems with triple zero calls.
The ACCC has announced "a public inquiry to determine whether NBN wholesale service standard levels are appropriate, and to consider whether regulation is necessary to improve customer experiences".
The 112-page report into the failed 2016 census, tabled by the Senate Economics Reference Committee on Thursday, presumably brings to an end — for the year at least — the unedifying tale of how bureaucrats and tech firms bungled what should be an orderly count of the populace.
The Senate Economics Reference Committee has recommended that any privacy impact assessment into the census should be handled by an external party and the outcome published on the website of the Australian Bureau of Statistics a year before the census to which it relates.
A parliamentary panel will hold an inquiry into the failure of the Australian census website last month and also look at the privacy implications of the Australian Bureau of Statistics' new data policy.
