Printers Post: Tasmanian councils endorse Keep Me Posted campaign

The Local Government Association of Tasmania has passed a motion of support to Keep Me Posted, the consumer campaign advocating the consumer’s right to choose how their service providers communicate with them, free of charge.

Last September, a Public Forum organised in Devonport and hosted by Senator Urquhart gathered residents, representatives of charities and political representatives to discuss the impact of the digital divide and unfair fee practices. This resulted in the Devonport City Council carrying a motion of support to the campaign. On Friday, November 4 the Local Councils of Tasmania unilaterally took the opportunity to stand for their residents’ right to choose.
