Australia starts Triple Zero system review

Tuesday 8 July 2014 | 12:07 CET | News
Australia's Ministry of Communications will start a review of the national Triple Zero (000) operator.

The Ministry says emerging technologies are creating new opportunities for the Triple Zero service beyond the current 'voice-only' service. The review will study the future direction of the service, and will analyze possible modifications that need to be made to national operator arrangements
