Lobby group Internet Australia has told the Australian Government it is “deeply concerned” over its request to Facebook to halt plans to introduce strong end-to-end encryption in its messaging systems.
A group of industry associations are calling for the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security not to scuttle the Parliamentary process and bow to government pressure to “wave through” the Telecommunications and Other Legislation Amendment (Assistance and Access) Bill 2018 commonly known as the encryption bill.
Internet Australia has weighed into the debate about consumers being misled on NBN Internet speeds by telcos, calling on all ISPs to follow Telstra and Optus and reimburse misled FttN customers.
NBN Co’s explanation on why Australia is stuck with having to pay more for the rollout of FttP services across the national broadband network, compared to other countries, doesn’t wash with one of the NBN’s staunchest critics, Internet Australia chief Laurie Patton.
A new industry alliance has been formed with the aim of shaping and leading debate on the future of a digitally-enabled Australia and the country’s development of digital infrastructure beyond 2020.
Internet Australia chief executive Laurie Patton, a long-time critic of the NBN and the network’s mix of technology, much of it to be delivered on an "ageing copper network", reckons Australia is being outplayed by its global competitors who are building fibre-based systems providing speeds that “cannot be matched by FTTN”.
Internet Australia has raised concerns about the implications of the choice of technology and the long-term risks that it creates for the National Broadband Network, in the wake of a report by the Parliamentary Budget Office.
Telstra could lose billions of dollars in payments if the federal government adopts recommendations by the Productivity Commission that the Telecommunications Universal Service Obligation be scrapped.
Internet Australia chief Laurie Patton has again called for NBN Co, the builders of the National Broadband Network, to dump its copper-based (FttN) rollout in favour of a return to fibre, despite the company just announcing more than one million premises are now ready for connection via the FttN network.
More than one million premises are now ready for connection to the National Broadband Network via the fibre-to-the-node (FttN) network as NBN Co speeds up the rollout across the country.
Internet Australia chief executive Laurie Patton has raised concerns about the “low-subscriber take-up” of the National Broadband Network suggesting that the problem may be exacerbated by consumers not signing up because of uncertainty about the speed of the Internet service delivered by the NBN Co.
Internet Australia has given a tick of approval to the NSW government for its decision to allocate significant funding to foster innovation, saying state governments are crucial to Australia becoming an "innovation nation".
Internet Australia is critical of the short-term thinking by both the major political parties that has plagued the planning, development and roll-out of the National Broadband Network. IA has now made a pre-election call for a focus on the long-term benefits of a fast broadband service and has given its support to a review of the network rollout.
Two of Australia’s ICT industry bodies – the Australian Computer Society and Internet Australia - have lauded the government’s Budget funding commitments to the establishment of a national cyber security strategy.
