Analyst: Paul Budde


In May 2006 the NZ government launched its telecommunications reforms. Telecom’s reaction has been positive and it has promised better wholesale services, better broadband services and the speeding up of their NGN activities, which will allow it to deliver nationwide ‘digital lifestyle’ products by 2008. Can Telecom be trusted to deliver all of this in a competitive way? There is no doubt that strong regulatory sticks need to be at the ready to ensure a positive outcome, but perhaps the government should, for the moment, hold off with the implementation. An industry-driven, voluntary process would definitely be preferable.
