What a cynical, politically motivated dummy spit – gotta be some kind of a record.
Before you begin believing Sol and his mates and start to doubt the ACCC, ask yourself if you really want a company like Telstra to have undue influence over the future of broadband (and it’s pricing) in Australia. They can’t even deliver an equitable product to their current broadband customers – as a mac user with Telstra broadband cable, I can vouch for the fact that they don’t give a flying f*ck about minority user groups.
As soon as ADSL+2 is available at our exchange, I’m giving them the boot. If they want to invest their dollars overseas, let them! Someone will build a network here and then they can charge Telstra a ripe premium for the privilege of competing for our custom.
