Structural Separation Undertaking compliance issues have arisen largely from errors made by Telstra staff, according to the ACCC


Compliance breaches have continued to dog the separation of Telstra’s wholesale and retail businesses, despite overall improvements in the process, according to a new report by the Australian competition watchdog.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) tabled its Telstra’s Structural Separation Undertaking annual compliance report in Parliament on 27 April.

Three of these telecom stocks could make you rich. With the fourth one, you'll probably lose your shirt
Telecom stocks often present a mix of stable dividends and growth potential that's downright tempting for many investors. It's also a dynamic industry in a constant state of change.

The telecommunications landscape is set to see a drastic transformation this year as the industry continues to transform its business models and services to better serve the digital consumer. In Singapore, we will see the entry of the nation’s fourth telco, TPG. Companies like TPG represent the future of telecommunications in Singapore – in line with service providers looking to transform their business models to better serve digital consumers – while managing traditional networks and systems.
