    re: TLS a shinin light ... dubya Hmmm... bad hair day ... ???

    I think it was Einstein(?) who said 'genius is not a matter of knowing the answer but knowing which question to ask' ...

    Let me give you a hint ... my dear 'ol mum is still RENTING the fixed-line and handset (yes ... one of those black bakelite jobs...) that was installed in 1952 ... and good 'ol mum dutifully sends in the cheque each month ...

    IT COSTS TELSTRA ZILCH and the capital cost was probably depreciated to zero back about 1960 ...

    Industry analysts have long been critical of TLS pricing policy as this former PUBLIC UTILITY had the entire telecommunications grid held freehold and paid for by PUBLIC FUNDS prior to privatisation ...

    A little advantage Optus does not have ... not a level playing field ...

    Any discussion inevitably leads to these and other debatable questions concerning privatisation which will rage for years to come ...

    The real issue (which has been long argued by industry analysts) is that telecommunications is national infrastructure on which we all depend in the IT era and too important to let fall into the hands of a private monopoly which already snubs it nose at Government regulators ...

    Cheers ...

    This is only my view ... read the red stuff.
