Analyst: Paul Budde


On the one hand, I don’t expect that telecommunications will make or break the 2004 Federal Election, but, on the other, telecoms is an ideal vote-grabbing device. The Democrats are the first to come up with a set of solid, cutting-edge telecoms policies – policies that show vision. Labor has already gone down the vote-grabbing trail and the government is sticking (at least so far) to its single telecoms policy – the privatisation of Telstra. The report also includes the wish list of the industry’s leading lobby group, ATUG. This free report will be progressively updated during the campaign.

Purchase with Confidence

We wanted to extend our Com World Series of telecoms industry events to the South Pacific region and we were in urgent need of a partner in the region who could assist us with confirming the involvement of governments, telcos and more. Paul Budde and his team executed this perfectly. Paul also provided us with very high quality reports on every aspect of the project, including an amazingly thorough and actionable report on the conference presentations and discussion.
