I am distributing this in the first instance to members of ISOCNZ Council
and to the NZNOG group. Apologies to those who get it twice. I also
apologise to those who cannot read the Word format document. Anyone stuck,
please email me and I will make some other arrangement; fax if necessary.
***If you want to continue to receive relevant material PLEASE EMAIL ME
DIRECTLY. If you do not, take no further action, I will not trouble you
again.***** Ideally, this process should have its own email list and, if
there is interest, I will ensure one is established.
As I explained some time ago to at least some of you; and I touched on
briefly in my slot at the 98 F2F, the APEC Telecommunications Working Group
(TEL) has moved quite rapidly to look at the issue of international charging
for Internet services. Attached is a cover letter addressed to members of
TEL and the current Terms of Reference for the study, both in Word 7 format
(please note, before anyone bytes my head of, this is how I received it).
I am asking ISOCNZ to provide a point of contact for consultation between
the NZ Government representatives on TEL and the "industry" (whatever that
means in this context). Please note that, as far as I am aware, anyone may
become a member of TEL and attend its meetings so if folk have a problem
with this consultation process they can bypass it.
I consider a much greater danger to be that interested parties will not hear
of the study through these two contact groups so I would appreciate comments
on who should receive this information. Please pass it on to colleagues or
friends. I am reluctant to blast it out over isocnz-l simply to avoid
unnecessary pollution of the email waves.
Thanks for your help
