Broadband Services Expert Group Report

Networking Australia's Future: The Final Report of the Broadband Services Expert Group, December 1994

'The Expert Group recommends that the privacy of users of advanced networks be protected by developing a self-regulatory scheme for network participants within the framework of the Privacy Act' (p 67). In its three pages of comments on privacy issues, the BSEG identifies the priority of determining the appropriate structure for regulation, suggesting that the Information

Privacy Principles of the Privacy Act provide a guide for telecommunications privacy issues. In particular, the report highlights the importance of consultation, complaint procedures, public education and information, and ensuring that customers do not have to pay extra to protect their privacy.
