1. AAPT sale rumour was again raised in the The Australian on October 24th. On October 25th Telecom told the Herald AAPT was not up for sale and Telecom was instead investing another A$120M in the business
2. The number of redundancies was fixed at 700 by the Herald (October 18th 'Telecom Slashing Up To 700 Jobs') as quoted by an 'internal Telecom unnamed source'. In this same article the number was refuted by Telecom.
I find it interesting that Computerworld has reported the 700 redundancies as a fact when I can not recall seeing any official Telecom statement to this effect. The orginal Herald article lacks all credibiliy and any basis of fact because it does not name the source.
The article is clearly a rehash of every major Telecom story from the month of October.
