Australia is one of the leading countries to recognise the social and economic benefits of broadband infrastructure. The government is even committed to a major investment to ensure that these benefits are spread evenly throughout the country and the community. However, without a genuine participation from Telstra in the execution of this plan any such investment would be wasted. The major problem lies in Telstra’s refuses to participate in a process that would lead to a proper national solution. Instead it has opted for a highly focused and successful campaign to delay any new form of competition. This is buying the incumbent time to better prepare for the changing environment. Without firm government action the currently announced delays in the NBN process will become enduring, dragging on till 2010, and with no incentive for Telstra to change its current behaviour, this could easily derail one of the government’s key election promises.
