Australia - Industry Analysis - New Telco Business Models


The convergence of telecommunications, media, IT and consumer electronic markets is offering unprecedented opportunities for those organisations who understand these developments and are able to analyse what will work for them. However, it is obvious that these new opportunities require new business models. Media convergence driven by technology will cause problems for companies that have a vested interest in maintaining their own ‘old’ structure. The lack of change towards new business models is one of the major stumbling blocks in the developments of a new economically viable market structure.

Purchase with Confidence

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
