Telecom realised some time ago that home phone lines & cell phones companies will become a thing of the past before long.
We will all be communicating over the internet using the likes of Skype, wireless internet etc in the very near future.
So instead of trying to set up a competitive market, National and Steven Joyce hand their old mates at Telecom 70% of the Ultra Fast Broadband contract, a virtual monopoly.
Also don’t forget just to tidy things up National are about to repeal our free calling under the Kiwi share.
So who is running Our Government? And how long will it take for Telecom to take control of the other 30% of the UFB? Not long suckers!
It’s becoming clear now Joyce had done a deal with Telecom from the start surprise, surprise.
Telecom is the best example of why we should keep total ownership & control of our assets.
From Theresa Gattung’s “using confusion as a marketing tool is fine”. To Paul Reynolds the present Telecom CEO, who’s take home and salary package last year was worth an estimated $7m, including a estimated $3m bonus, this is the very same Paul Reynolds, that still manages to keep his job after Telecoms new XT network debacle last year. Reynolds stuffs up on a huge scale and he not only keeps his job, he gets a bonus. The average punter, well we gets five eighth’s of piss all and can now be sacked for no reason in the first three months on the job.
Double standards , you bet! More corporate welfare for the Right, when they mess up or get caught stealing, they get a bonus and a pat on the back, when we mess up it’s the dole queue or bankruptcy.
Lets never forget this corporation ‘Telecom New Zealand’ is the only transnational corporation (TNC) to have been a finalist every year since the Roger Awards started a decade ago, some achievement.
They have been shown to be lying and stealing from us since the day they where privatised, and what does National do? It hops in bed with them and for a deal sweetener they drop in a billion plus dollars of our money.
Joyce will be the new leader of the Nacts once Key gets all his photo collection together. Joyce’s record with Telecom, Mediaworks, and corporate welfare disguised as motorway projects is well known. If he ever becomes PM, it will be open season for corporations to use the public coffers as their private chequing account.
Who pays the piper calls the tune.
