Australia - The August 2005 Telecoms Revolution


On 17 August 2005 the Australian Government placed a bomb under the various cosy telecoms relationships in this country. It created a $3 billion kitty for contestable infrastructure investment developments; it has set in motion the operational separation of Telstra and has abandoned its policy to sell the remaining 51% of Telstra shares in one hit. This new environment represents the biggest telecoms revolution the country has ever seen. This report discusses a range of issues that now must be discussed in order to guide these processes in the right direction. Execution is now the watchword.
