TEL­STRA LEADER BASHES THE BUSH Moves to force Tel­stra to pro­vide ser­vices to the bush were un­fair and likely to dam­age the telco, one of its top ex­ec­u­tives said. Tel­stra’s sec­ond-most pow­er­ful man, Phil Burgess, claimed the US would be stuck in the 19th cen­tury if it had adopted Aus­tralian-style telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion poli­cies. He said Tel­stra was be­ing turned into a loser by be­ing forced to pro­vide ser­vices to the bush.
