Wholesale continues to be a problem area for the industry. Margins are often extremely thin and Telstra can ruin the viability of the industry with the stroke of a pen. The ACCC has been very active in this field, but the stakes are so high that Telstra is willing to accept the risk of fines rather than make more progressive changes to the structure. By 2005, a day-to-day operational level wholesale had become a more mainstream operation. However, after the arrival of the new CEO this was largely undone in 2006. In 2008 the market went actually down. Without government intervention the situation is unlikely to change in 2009. This report also provides revenue and other industry statistics.
