    Amcom seem to be doing pretty bloody well in Perth, Adelaide and Darwin for a small telco. Is there a rumour of possible consolidation with another operator going around? That maybe spiked the share price last week because the good quarterly result hasn't done much. Nice thing about Amcom is they face less competition in the west than telcos in the east.

    broadband solutions provider to large corporate, government and carrier clients in Adelaide, Perth and Darwin on Friday released its cash flow results
