About
 
In this era of heavy Internet surveillance, are the issues of availability, service performance and affordability being eclipsed by fears of national security?
Over recent weeks we have seen a range of Internet issues come to general attention:
 
  • Government agencies allegedly conducting mass surveillance overseas
  • Attempts to legislate for mass record keeping about the activity of Australians online
  • New NBN policy approaches
  • International mobile data roaming charges out of control
Speakers from the Internet Society will give an overview of their top five Internet issues for Australians, with a chance for attendees to contribute their own top five to the discussion.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to compare notes with our colleagues from other Asia-Pacific nations with news from chapters around the region.
