92A is dead

This just in from Geekzone, Telstraclear has pulled out of the Telecommunications Carriers' Forum Code of Practice, effectively killing off 92A. TelstraClear spokesman Chris Mirams sez:
"It is not our role to make bad legislation work," he says. "The industry had no input into section 92A. [The draft code] is bad for our customers. Customers and businesses have spoken via blogs and petitions and also directly to us. We have listened and we have agreed."
Without the support of such a dominant ISP, it is only a matter of time before other providers follow suit. Big ups to Telstraclear. I'm proud to have you as my ISP.
