Microsoft, Google and Telstra have quietly withdrawn financial support from Australia's leaderless peak internet industry body the Internet Industry Association. All three have confirmed they will not renew their financial memberships with the association.
According to Telstra, the three opted not to renew their memberships during strategic reviews last year. It is understood Telstra allowed its membership to lapse in October. Google left the organisation last year. Microsoft said it did not renew its membership when it lapsed in January.
