Analyst: Paul Budde


This report was archived in 2005. This report analyses the broadband offer that Telstra put on the table in late March 2004, following a competition notice which was issued to Telstra by the ACCC, as a consequence of the incumbent’s anti-competitive behaviour in relation to its earlier retail/wholesale pricing. While the new proposal certainly seems to be heading in the right direction, at the same time it incorporates elements that the industry is not happy about. The devil is clearly in the detail, with more negative points emerging once Telstra’s complex documentation was more thoroughly analysed. Further changes were launched in early 2005. This report analyses the pros and cons of the offer and indicates where changes to the proposal are needed.
