The early months of 2002 saw much political activity regarding Australia’s dominant telco. Proposals for the virtual separation of Telstra was welcomed across the industry, except of course by Telstra itself. Soon after, the Federal Treasurer announced the further sale of Telstra remained in the government’s agenda. The Federal Opposition also had suggestions for the separation of the incumbent, and Telstra was once again in the political spotlight. Concerns for regional Australia immediately rose to the fore as well, hoping to exploit the industry changes heralded. This report presents the Governments proposals for separation and privatization and the related industry issues of pricing and access.
