A warning from Telstra is that the 2G mobile network is to be shut down at the end of November this year. The telecom company has written to its affected users advising them they need to switch to newer 3G or 4G technology.

Meanwhile, WIA members registered with MEMNET who use PC’s and web browsers which are more than 10 years old such as Internet Explorer 6 or Opera version 5, will need to upgrade as support is being withdrawn for these early browsers.

Sunday the 28th August Omni Software the provider of the WIA's MEMNET service will be undertaking maintenance works and system improvements to support the latest security protocols, Omni have advised that any users affected by the upgrade will need to upgrade from their old Web browser versions. They advise that all versions of Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Internet Explorer 7 and above should be unaffected, although they recommend all users update their browsers to the latest version available.

The WIA apologises for the short notice given but timing of the change is purely in the hands of the MEMNET software provider.
