Despite some promising progress in the late 1990s, the traditional competition in the voice markets collapsed during 2001/2002. Consolidation, company collapses and rationalisation saw many (retail) customers move back to Telstra and Optus. This has left the market without sufficient large-scale operators to offer serious competition to Telstra; even Optus is no longer able to deliver national fixed-based competition. Real growth, driven by competition and innovation, rather than by monopolistic forces is clearly coming from the data market. This is set to continue over 2003 and 2004.
