Albanese government must release report on Optus outage

The Albanese Government must release a key report into the massive Optus outage which saw nearly 2700 calls fail to get through to the triple zero emergency line.

Communications Minister Michelle Rowland has been sitting on the Bean Review into the national Optus outage since 21 March.

A parliamentary inquiry into the Optus Network Outage has stalled while it waits for the Minister to release the report now on her desk.

As part of its terms of reference, the Senate inquiry is examining the steps taken by the Federal Government to ensure proper access to the triple zero service during the outage.

It was originally supposed to report to Parliament on 28 February, but that date was pushed back to 9 May while they waited for the Bean Review to be released so they could consider that report as part of its investigation.

The Committee is expected to recall Optus and call Telstra, ACMA and the department, particularly given new information about the scale of calls that didn’t get through to the triple zero service.

It is well past time for Minister Rowland to release the Bean Review.
