Trialling times for Web numbers plan
The Sydney Morning Herald - Next
By Jenny Sinclair

A proposal to use telephone numbers as a single contact point for
electronic communications runs the risk of increasing spam and
"slamming" of customers, an Australian Communications Authority
discussion paper has warned.
The ACA's discussion paper says that if the ENUM database - much like
an Internet address registry - is not set up properly, there may be
privacy risks. ...
The ACA is inviting interested groups to join a discussion group to
help steer ENUM trials, and is taking comment on the discussion paper
until November 11.
