With ongoing reductions in capex in telecommunications the long term future of this industry is under threat. Telecom clearly sees it responsibility in satisfying the financial market and its shareholders interests. There are however critical national economic and social issues that needs to be taken into consideration as well. Without competitive pressure Telstra sees no need to take a leadership role. It is therefore up to the government to make sure that its regulatory policies ensure the long term future of the country’s national telecoms infrastructure; preferable by effective policies that guarantees competition.
