Default SMH thinks CDMA is analogue

Sydney Morning Herald (4 Aug 2007) quote: "Deputy Prime Minister Mark Vaile
today threatened to stop Telstra closing down its analogue mobile phone
network in the bush if the government is not happy with replacement
services."

and...

"Mr Vaile said the government had the power to make that decision because
Telstra was a monopoly provider in regard to CDMA - the analogue-based
service."

Analogue my arse!

Yet again more ******** reporting from a rag that should be hung on the
dunny door.

Wrong, the govt can still mandate that if they want.

Its still by far the biggest share holder and can still mandate that even if it wasnt.

Wrong, commercial decision. Unlikely to be able to put that sort of licence
condition on them without a High Court Challenge.

Nope, not since the Telstra corporation Act was amended; such ministerial
directives no longer exist. In any case it is the Commonwealth's Future Fund
that has that share and hence Federal Ministers cannot exercise such powers,
rather the FF trustees can.

Commercial decision - Telstra will tell the Government to like it or lump
it. Just as the Government did to Telstra when it awarded OPEL the rural
broadband contract. Tough f'ing titties to you Mark Vaile.

Indeed. not only getting it wrong, but contradicting themselves further
into the article?

But it wasn't just the SMH... It was pretty much everyone who cut n
pasted that AAP article. The Age and The Herald Sun (ie, the
competition) both made the same mistake by blindly reporducing exactly
the same article.

So not only should the editors' be shot for such shoddy work, so should
the original writer for AAP.

CDMA is not USO, you cannot mandate a commercial organisation to maintain a
non-USO service (particularly when other carriers have not been forced to
offer CDMA).

Sol just gave Coonan and Vaile an appropriate brown-eye in response to
their request/demand.

You better tell Coonan that she cant do what she has just done, ****wit.

Dont be too surprised when she makes an obscene gesture

All the Govt can do is NOT allow Telstra to use the CDMA spectrum space any
longer. They cant force them to use it

ACMA can force people NOT to operate a particular service (eg: CDMA) in a
particular spectrum, however it cannot demand Telstra to continue an
unviable commercial operation. When will you ever learn that this is a
purely commercial decision for Telstra management, irrespective of how many
tantrums and threats Vaile and Coonan make.

No egg on my face, will be on yours when Sol turns CDMA off.
National/Country Party bellyaching doesn't mean a thing to a privatized
entity. In fact, Telstra are legally obliged under Corporations law to
ensure the best profit for shareholders, ie: turn off CDMA ASAP.
