Australia - The state of the industry in 2003

Synopsis

We are starting to see an ever so cautious recover. Some companies are beginning to recover from the telco crisis and there is a far more optimistic feeling in the market. There is a mixture of regulatory ness. Against ACCC recommendations divest Telstra’s share in Foxtel. However, ACCC recommendations re better access prices are a step forward. There is still a very serious backlog in broadband penetration – for which he could use the BAG Report. He will also have to respond to the Estens Report, which calls for some major government funding in infrastructure and/or a new direction for facilities-based competition by encouraging states, local councils and the utilities to supply an alternative.
