There are not many remaining of the so-called ‘new’ telcos that entered the market during the 1990s. Most of these companies used a business model copied from Telstra, simply adding a discount. And most of them failed to become key players in the then emerging Internet market, and in the later broadband market. On the infrastructure side – more bad news, with all the newcomers competing with each other for the same 400 corporate customers. By 2003 a new trend began, with broadband service providers and utilities becoming more prominent. Indecisive federal government policies and regulations have produced a change in leadership, with initiatives now coming from states and local councils.
