The Phone Rights smartphone application was made possible due to a bequest made by Maureen Le Blanc, who, over a period of 20 years, greatly contributed to consumer representation and research in the telecommunications industry in Australia.
Maureen asked that her bequest be used for consumer education and it is her generous contribution has led to this smartphone application – which literally puts the power of consumer rights into consumers' hands.
Maureen was involved with the Consumer Telecommunications Network (CTN) from its early days in 1991 and became CTN’s Deputy Chairperson in 2006. She also leant her voice to small business’s concerns through Small Enterprise Telecommunications Centre (SETEL).
There are many consumer representatives and groups around Australia who were fortunate to work with Maureen via her role on the Telstra Consumer Consultative Committee Secretariat. In addition, Maureen was a foundation member of ACMA's Consumer Consultative Forum and a member of the ACIF/Communications Alliance Consumer Council.
