Telstra is in the box-seat again. NBN: A BLEAK FORECAST FOR BROADBAND COMPETITION http://www.techly.com.au/2014/10/23/nbn-bleak-forecast-broadband-competition/ "And what does that mean for you? A compromise. No significant changes to your broadband speed. No possibility for the Internet to be treated with the same importance as other utilities such electricity and water, let alone as an asset that could drive the new economy and fill the void left behind by the mining boom." What's good for Telstra is good for NBN Co http://www.businessspectator.com.au/article/2014/10/23/technology/whats-good-telstra-good-nbn-co "The Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull has been doing his best to ignore industry complaints about his handling of the telecommunications portfolio and the number of unanswered questions about how the government intends to successfully implement its NBN plan is growing daily. It is time for the telecommunications industry to step up to the plate. The government is providing ample opportunity for the industry to come together and fight what is clearly a spectacular mess. Speaking out in the media is not really going to achieve anything because Turnbull’s silence indicates he is not listening. There are two questions that the telecommunications industry needs to mull over - Will the telecommunications industry come together and turn its wrath on the government rather than lambasting Telstra in the media? And is it prepared to go to the courts to stop the government’s ill-advised changes to the NBN and telecommunications regulation?"
