Telstra CEO Slams Federal MPs In Rural Councils
“Telstra invests more than anybody in regional and rural Australia,” Penn told the National Press Club yesterday, in a televised speech from Melbourne.
“We’ve spent about $5 billion over the last three or four years. Those members of parliament are confusing their own government policy and their own obligations with Telstra.
“We’re a private enterprise, we’re there to work with and support investment, and we are.”
He also hinted at selling off more assets.
“In terms of [selling] other assets or infrastructure, that’s probably for another day.”
