Analyst: Paul Budde


The Coalition Government (since 1996) has only one major telco policy and that is the privatisation of Telstra. Therefore all other telecoms policy issues have been neglected since that time. Where telecoms and media merge the government policies are mainly dictated by the media moguls and their vested interests are in delaying any new development (regulatory or technology wise) for as long as possible. This has resulted in Australia featuring at the bottom of the OECD’s broadband penetration list.
