Australia - Structural Separation a defiant Telstra


Immediately following his arrival in mid-2005 Sol Trujillo dismissed the internal workgroup that was working with the government on a plan for the operational separation of Telstra. After the government legislated operational separation the incumbent toughened its position, and it accused the government, the regulator and the industry in ways previously unheard of in corporate Australia. This report tracks and analyses the issues that developed over the 2005-2007 period.
