Government To Force Telstra To Structurally Separate

The big Australian tech news of the day (and arguably of the year) is that the government plans to force structural separation onto Telstra, meaning that it will be forced to essentially hand over its control of the existing national telephone network (including ADSL). Like the NBN, the arguments over this will be huge, and there’s not likely to be any noticeable difference for the average consumer for quite some time. We’ll look into the implications when the dust settles, but meanwhile you can read the announcement on the DBCDE site.
