philmarcracken writes “The Senate recently passed a bill through the Lower House for the separation of Telstra’s retail and wholesale arms and now that same bill has just scraped by in the Upper House; 30 to 28. The deal is worth $11 billion AUD for Telstra and is welcomed by them despite Coalition opposition. This paves the way for the governmental body NBNco to use Telstra’s existing assets and expedite laying fibre optic cables to the larger population densities.”
