Speech to Parliament: Supporting Bill to Regulate Privatised Telco

Share This Post

Today in Parliament, I supported a bill that seeks to preserve the operation of a range of regulatory obligations imposed on Telstra following its privatisation and planned restructure.

I wish that Telstra would restructure their business so they actually improve service for customers who are paying their bills, not the size of their executives’ pay packets.

Telecommunications are more important now than ever.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we live and work, the way we study, the way we access health care and the way we stay in touch with our loved ones.

Unlike Labor, the coalition has improved telecommunications in many communities across Australia by delivering the Mobile Black Spot Program, and it will soon deliver the announced Peri-Urban Mobile Program.

I will continue to fight for better communications in my community and across Australia.
