Telstra boss runs foul of Howard on criticism – Business – Business – smh.com.au

Oh the irony.

Telstra would not be allowed to play “regulatory roulette” with future services to the bush, Senator Coonan said as the Federal Government’s battle with the company intensified.

Hang on a minute, the government is battling an entity of which it owns 51%? Are we to assume that the final sell off of Telstra will be a good thing? They can’t have it both ways – enforcing regulations on a private entity to ensure that the rural area is taken care of. This is exactly why these services need to be public. Infrastructure 101 morons!
