Analyst: Paul Budde


In early 2007 the then Labor Opposition launched their National Broadband Plan. This was developed against the policies of the then Government. It was hoped that Labor, now in Government, would use its unique opportunity to fix the long-standing problems in the telecoms market, which had led to high consumer prices, lack of innovation and very little effective competition. Its Request for Proposals document doesn’t address any of these issues and could lead to a continuation of the current unsatisfactory situation. Telstra is the only one who can successfully bid for a national solution under the RFP but they have already indicated that they will offer high-speed broadband at prices that BuddeComm indicates will be unaffordable to 60% of Australians.
