Poll: Will the structural separation of Telstra be beneficial to the Australian public

The Federal Government has overcome it's biggest challenge so far with Telstra's deal with the NBN Co

This week, an agreement was made between Telstra and the NBN Co on the telco’s involvement with the National Broadband Network (NBN).

The deal, labelled a Financial Heads of Agreement deal, will see Telstra migrate its voice and broadband customers to the NBN, while decommissioning its copper network and cable broadband service. The question, however, is whether a structural separation of Telstra - which the Federal Government has proposed for some time - will be beneficial to Australians.

No, I think it's too easy and gives licence to politicians to copy and paste from pre-prepared information, or screen questions 30%

No, I think it was a complete waste of time, I didn't benefit from it at all 60%
