An industry Roundtable in Sydney (November 2004) titled The Privatisation of Telstra are you ready? came up with three key regulatory issues that would be achievable within the political reality of the Australian telecoms market today: (i) stronger accounting separation rules, to properly separate wholesale from retail; (ii) more regulatory powers (including encouraging the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) to be more courageous in using the powers it already has); and (iii) a further strengthening of the government’s commitment to the future-proofing of the regional telecoms infrastructure. This report also looks at Britain’s Ofcom report on telecommunications reform as a potential guide for Australia.
