After from the fact it was usual to take 4-6 weeks to have a new phone
connection, and an STD call, in real terms, was 5 times the price it is now?

IDD? No one could afford to make IDD calls then.

Now, I can make an IDD call for the same price, IF NOT CHEAPER, than my
mobile

Telstra was never in the forefront. And what has changed is not because
of 'privatisation' - Telstra's two successive John-Howard-appointee CEOs
have virtually halted long-term investment. This means that Telstra's
future has been curtailed by poor choices.

But thanks to Keating-implemented deregulation we have other licensees
(one of them from Singapore) who *have* invested in the long-term. IOW,
you are benefitting from the long-term faith and trust of pension fund
holders in Singapore and other countries who *have* invested into our
telecommunications infrastructure.

But don't expect further 'privatisation' from Howard (and consequently
better services) - Howard's record is higher taxes and subsidies. Like
the half-baked bush broadband subsidy. Why do we (via the government)
subsidise the bush when it could quite simply be funded via spectrum
auctions. Plus the $10b or so that Packer didn't pay for free-to-air TV
licenses.

In the meantime, Telstra has become a political party. This is their
response to the OPEL proposal:
"a foreign owned company, using a partnership with Elders as a front,
with no record of investing in regional Australia"

Pig ignorant lie. It was real competition with IDD that produced that.

Taint gunna happen. Telstra STILL produces a
profit that leaves all the rest IN TOTAL for dead.

Mainly as a result of giving fools like you the bums rush, right out the door.

No more than Telstra has.

Another pig ignorant lie. What Singtel has invested in the expansion of
the Optarse GSM system is comparable to what Telstra has invested
in NextG and Telstras investment in adsl has left Optarse's for dead.

> But don't expect further 'privatisation' from Howard


Corse there will be.

Thats arguable with T3.

Another pig ignorant lie. Taxes have been significantly
reduced from the rates that fool Keating had.

They are funded by the flogging off of Telstra instead.

Another pig ignorant lie. A political player at most. Party have members, stupid.

Just the usual bare faced Telstra lie. Pity about the
GSM investment Optarse has done in regional Aust.

The satellite system in spades.

Well, if it comes to a choice, I'd rather have a system run well from
Singapore than one run badly from Canberra.

Like hell. Only rolled out in defence because the local loop was

If NextG (nice 'marketing' solution, BTW) was a credible solution and

why wasn't NextG offered as a solution for bush broadband?

Optus/Elders gets nearly $1b of taxpayers money to put DSLAMs in rural
exchanges. Shame Telstra decided to play politics instead.

Satphones have been around for at least 15 years. First (because they
were a monopoly) they had no incentive to use them for the bush, now
(because USO is a lucrative revenue earner) they are cross-subsidised by
the other telcos *and* city dwellers *and* they want
government.subsidies. The whole place needs an ANO audit - no evidence
of technical skills at the top.

It was by Telstra, its just much slower than WiMax.

Doesnt alter the fact that NextG is a long term
investment, you pathetic excuse for a ******** artist.

So was GSM for that matter. And adsl too.

Wrong again, the bulk of that $1B is paying for WiMax.

What your views on private asset companies like Silcar given permission by
Telstra to tap into Telstra's computer network so Telstra can sack a few
thousand of its own employees.
Silcar now gains 98% of its work from Telstra. Silcar pays their employees
far less than Telstra for an equivalent job.

You cant offer a "solution" for something that isn't a problem.

NextG is already here. It already works.

Opel is unnecessary and duplication of existing assets.

But if it provides more competition and cheaper prices to customers, im all
for it.

They dont want to have to resell it, and fair enough to Telstra. Its their
asset and they can do what they like. Turn about is fair play

******** anyway, Optus's GSM expansion is much less in cost than the CDMA or
NextG networks.

Explain your tin-hat statements.

What "tapping in"?
What "computer systems"?

They mainly do power and not much else for Telstra

Big whoop, their problem

Pity Coonan thinks otherwise. The government was wise enough to avoid
Telstra. Sol Trujillo and Phil Burgess's continued whinging and
tantrum-chucking got them in an even worse position.

Ya reckon ? Sitting here in Katoomba right now about 2kms line of sight to
the tower my NextG work phone is blatantly refusing to shift off GSM. So I
certainly can't use any of the extra features that 3 and a half G
offers.....
