The Australian Communications and Media Authority has commenced legal proceedings against TPG Internet Pty Ltd for alleged failures to give access to the 000 emergency call service.  Specifically, the ACMA alleges that TPG Internet breached the Telecommunications (Emergency Call Service) Determination 2009 by failing to give some customers access to 000 for a period of about six months.  Carriers and carriage service providers need to review the precise requirements under this Determination and review their compliance with it.  [From ACMA media release, 9 November 2012.]
