natecochrane writes “The CEO of Australia’s No.2 telco, Optus, has called for a “baby Bell” solution to handle what he says is a growing threat to competition in the emerging $43 billion Australian national fibre-broadband network. Paul O’Sullivan says that only by breaking up the network architect NBN Co and tendering out its services, overseen by an independent board (much like Australia’s Reserve Bank the Fed), can competition be preserved. And he had a few choice words to say about Australia’s ‘No.2′ ISP, iiNet: ‘If you take into account we operate a cable network and not ADSL [primarily] we’re still significantly larger than iiNet.’”
