The unexpected turn of political events last week saw the ousting of Kevin Rudd as prime minister and his former deputy, Julia Gillard, elected in his place.
The change has cast much doubt in the eyes of the Australian people about the stability of the Government and its policies, particularly within the ICT sector, where the National Broadband Network (NBN) and the mandatory ISP-level filter are contentious topics.
The question is whether Gillard’s Government will make any changes to these policies before the next federal election?
Results from last week’s poll are in, answering the question: Will the structural separation of Telstra be beneficial to the Australian public?
Definitely, I think it is beneficial to Australian telecommunications 75%
Yes, but I still have some concerns 4%
I'm indifferent 0%
No, I think Telstra should remain whole 12%
No, I think the NBN is a bad idea 9%
