Telecom reaction to bill: not ideal but we'll work with it

Incumbent has already started reorganisation

Telecom chairman Wayne Boyd says that the Telecommunications Amendment Bill is not ideal, and that the incumbent would've preferred a simpler form of operational separation.

However, Telecom will implement the three-way separation as swiftly as reasonably possible, Boyd says, even though it's costlier and more complex.

Boyd says certainty is needed for the telecommunications industry, with healthy competition and strong investment the desired outcomes. He says that until now, the focus has been mostly on competition but Telecom would like to see more interest in investment too.
