LRTV Interview: Telstra CEO Sol Trujillo
We'll someday see ubiquitous 4G networks, but there's no reason to make consumers wait for a mobile broadband experience, according to Telstra CEO Sol Trujillo, who stopped for a brief chat with Light Reading last week at NXTcomm. (See Telstra CEO: Survival of the Bravest.)
Trujillo says the regulatory environment in Australia isn't one that encourages fiber-to-the-home investments, but he notes that there are many other things carriers can do to make sure they deliver a complete set of services to consumers -- and hold onto those customers as competition heats up.
He also reminded us that Telstra is committed to delivering speeds of up to 42 Mbit/s to handsets on its networks by the end of 2009, an investment that should pay off as consumers require more services on the go. (See Telstra Touts 3G Usage.)
