Help for the Helplines - handling unwelcome calls

man on phone.jpgThe ACMA has registered a revision of the Handling of Life Threatening and Unwelcome Communications Code –an industry code, developed under the auspices of Communications Alliance - which regulates the handling of unwelcome and harassing calls. The revised code now includes arrangements for service providers to suspend services to people who repeatedly make unwelcome calls - including harassing, offensive or nuisance calls – to helplines such as Lifeline. Such callers will in the first instance receive a warning but if the warning is ignored, service providers will now be able to take action to suspend a service. Unfortunately, helplines, such as Lifeline which is staffed primarily by volunteers receive thousands of unwelcome calls annually. This is not only distressing to the volunteers but diverts resources from assisting genuine callers.

ACCAN funding secured – consumer representation

couple with phone.jpgIn a Report on Consumer representation: Review of section 593 of the Telecommunications Act 1997 released 27 Feb 2017, the Government has committed to continued funding of ACCAN as the peak body representing Australian consumers in the telecommunications sector. In the Report, the Government re-iterated its support for ACCAN as an effective consumer organisation, although it recommended several improvements that could be made to the way ACCAN represents consumers and allocates funds for research. For example, the Report recommends that ACCAN consult more closely with industry organisations, such as AMTA, as well as the ACMA, ACCC and Department of Communications as part of its research funding allocation process. Closer consultation by ACCAN with industry and regulatory bodies was something requested by industry in the joint submission made by AMTA and Communications Alliance during the review process.

Ensuring Australia is Ready for 5G

5G-phone-altered.jpgPreparing for the 5th generation of mobile technology (5G) is a major industry agenda that also requires Government engagement to drive relevant policy and regulatory reform. Specifically, allocation of new radio-frequency spectrum resources combined with regulatory reform for mobile network deployment are imperatives needed to support the continued growth of Mobile Broadband (MBB) and 5G evolution. Timely allocation of new spectrum resources as well as efficient roll-out of mobile infrastructure, requires thoughtful consideration and decision-making by policy makers. This will help create the environment that can fully realise the benefits of 5G. In relation to these imperatives, AMTA and the Communications Alliance (the Associations) recently commented on the ACMA’s Five Year Spectrum Outlook 2016-2020 (FYSO), and noted the sense of urgency required to address pre-implementation requirements for the evolution to 5G.
