Poll: will Telstra buying Digicel improve competition?

Welcome,

This poll has ended (since 10 months).

Australia's largest telco, Telstra, and the Australia Government are making a bid to buy Digicel Pacific. Will a Telstra-owned Digicel improve competition in PNG's telecommunication's market? Take our poll.

The US$1.6 billion (K3.51 billion) deal struck between Telstra, the Australian Government and Digicel, will see the PNG's dominant telco being owned and operated by Telstra (if it receives regulatory approval).

Will it improve competition and drive down prices? Let us know what you expect below. (NB This poll will close 5 November at 5pm PNG time.)
