This morning ABC Radio National Breakfast interviewed Kate McKenzie, Group Managing Director, Telstra Wholesale about their bid for the National Broadband Network. McKenzie dismissed Terria’s bid as simply a political stunt designed to push the issue of structural separation and said that Telstra would pull out of the bidding process if that were a condition.  She also said that there would be fair and equitable access for all providers, but said that Telstra would naturally charge for use of any infrastructure they put in place.
