CommsDay Melbourne Congress Thursday 15 November 2018 @ 17:13

There was a strong Symbio representation at this year’s CommsDay Congress in Melbourne with two Symbio executives delivering keynotes at the event. On the first day of the congress CEO Rene Sugo delivered his keynote, calling for a creative new approach to the upcoming 5G spectrum auction. Sugo emphasized the importance of ensuring healthy competition in the Australian market outside of the big 3 providers.

On the second day of the event, General Manager of Industry & Government Relations, Michelle Lim addressed the Congress. Lim, who is also the chair of the competitive alliance for challenger Retail Service Providers, known as ‘Commpete’, launched its proposal to Government, outlining the “5 pillars of success for competition reform”. These included:

  • Right of access to mobile networks for the smaller challengers.
  • NBN CEO required to achieve a target of 30 per cent competition.
  • A writedown of NBN to allow a price reset.
  • Competitive impact statements when proposing new market measures.
  • A commitment to structural separation principles of NBN.

Symbio will continue to stand for the small to mid-sized segment of the telecommunications industry and represent the interests of our wholesale customers.
