Heres a connection to the Australian floods. Telstra
The Queensland floods have caused extensive damage to Australia’s telecom infrastructure, with Telstra alone reportedly facing a repair bill of up to US$49.9 million.
According to reports, while Telstra has stated that it will not be able to assess the full cost of repairs until flood waters finally recede, Merrill Lynch has estimated that it could cost up to $50 million based on the repair costs of the Victorian bushfires of 2009.
Weeks of flooding in Queensland took a severe turn for the worse this week, causing service disruptions for Australian operators and ISPs.
The report further revealed that some areas of Queensland may be without telecom services for up to 18 days. Both Telstra and Optus estimate it could take three months to completely fix and replace all the affected equipment.
Yet another connection to Iridium but yet you still cant see? Come on people.edit on 15-1-2011 by jazz10 because: (no reason given)
Ok first of all, the only link to iridium telstra has is it's sat phones...
secondly... the damaged infastructure is our copper network, which is landline phones and adsl.
The damage is to exchanges mostly and some fttn exchanges.
Please do not bring telstra into this conspiracy unless it is in regards to them stuffing up pays on purpose in order to collect further interest as they are a bit of a sinking ship.....
