How to avoid more Vodafails

Vodafone is once again bemoaning its competitive disadvantages and yet it refuses to invest in its network. Perhaps a bit of forced competition could actually help the telco.

Vodafone would have the public – and the government – believe that Telstra is taking advantage of call termination fees which is the fee a carrier pays to another carrier when a customer calls someone on the other carrier’s network.

Because Vodafone has far fewer customers than Telstra and Optus, the telco faces a net outflow of cash at the end of every month. But really, the problem that Vodafone is facing – a shortage of customers – is one of its own making.
