Telstra to own 50% of 3 operations in Australia
Posted on 7-Aug-2004 09:57. | Tags Filed under: News.



Telstra CEO, Dr Ziggy Switkowski, and Hutchison CEO, Mr Kevin Russell, have announced the signing of a Heads of Agreement to establish a 50/50 enterprise to jointly own and operate H3GA's existing 3G radio access network and fund future network development.

Under the agreement, the H3GA radio access network will become the core asset of the joint enterprise. In return for the 50 per cent ownership of the asset, Telstra will pay Hutchison $450 million, under a fixed payment schedule, in four instalments, starting November 2004.

The joint enterprise will open opportunities for new revenues for Telstra and H3GA, stimulate growth in 3G service uptake and provide significant savings in 3G network construction capital expenditure and operating expenses such as site rental and maintenance.

Telstra will launch its 3G services to customers in 2005, utilising the entire H3GA network footprint of more than 2000 base stations covering Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.
