The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) has launched a new online tool for people in the agriculture sector to anonymously report concerns about competition or fair trading issues. Commissioner Mick Keogh says “people can now contact our agriculture team from any web-enabled device such as a PC, smart phone, laptop or tablet. “The tool encrypts the information and removes the person’s IP address so their identity is kept anonymous. The ACCC won’t know who is contacting us,” Mr Keogh says. More info: http://ow.ly/RYff30gtSH2

Cotton Australia has welcomed the final decision by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) not to declare a wholesale domestic mobile roaming service. Cotton Australia Policy Officer Angela Bradburn says that now the ACCC has resolved the domestic mobile roaming question, “it is incumbent on the telcos and the Federal Government to work hard to improve telecommunications infrastructure in the bush, which would fix major problems such as black spots in coverage”.
