Australia - Government Policies - Regulatory changes pre T3
In March 2005 the Minister put forward her plans for a regulatory overhaul, prior to the further privatisation of Telstra. These plans contain some good elements – strategies that will promote progress. However, we have seen many sound plans in the past, and the devil is, as always, in the detail. Only when an enforceable implementation plan is generated, with measurable outcomes, will we see any real progress. Without this it will be just another whitewash, leaving us even further back on the information highway. However, the debate inevitably comes back to structural separation. This report was archived in 2005. For more recent events, see the Australia - Regulations - T3 reforms report.
Moreover, the customer service personnel at BuddeComm helped me remedy an administrative problem within 5 minutes of sending the request...seriously, less than 5 minutes. All in all, Budde.com is a well-functioning organization with a useful product.
