FOI sword sheathed
Telstra under former boss Sol Trujillo sure knew how to wage war- 55 Freedom of Information applications in one month last year!! Acording to Business Spectator, Telstra sought documents it hoped would show the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) had been involved in setting up the G9 consortium seeking to compete with Telstra in discussions with the Government about the building of a fibre-based national broadband network. And was gearing up to continue the fight in the Administrative Appeals Tribunal. All withdrawn now as part of the shift in gears by new CEO David Thodey. Sighs of relief all round, I expect.
