Analyst: Kylie Wansink


The year 2002 saw much political activity regarding Australia’s dominant telco. Proposals for the virtual or accounting separation of Telstra were welcomed across the industry. However, when the new legislation was announced half a year later it was clear that it will not significantly improve the telecoms market and will not lead to a notable increase in competition. Having said this, the new legislation is an improvement on the current regime. Paul’s analysis drew a critical response from the Minister, which is included in this report, as well as his response to the Minister’s comments.
