Telstra is the top telecommunications and information services company in Australia that provides high-quality services for all of their customers. In fact, from 2011-2012, the total revenue of Telstra reached up to $25.4 billion, and their reported EBITDA was $10.2 billion. Furthermore, Telstra has access to at least 230 countries and offers one of the highest-speed networks in the Asia-Pacific region.
It was in 1901 when the Postmaster-General’s Department (PMG) was developed by the Commonwealth Government in order to manage telephone, postal, and telegraph services, and was named Telstra for international businesses in 1993 and for domestic businesses in 1995. However, in July 1997, the Commonwealth started selling parts of their share in the company to the public, which continued in 1999, 2006, and 2007. Telstra then signed a non-binding agreement with NBN Co. Limited, a Commonwealth owned company, that enables them to participate with the government’s national broadband network (NBN) roll-out.
Moreover, due to the fact that Australians have been heavily into high-speed mobile data, Telstra announced that their 4G customers had almost doubled in the first months of 2013. According to a report in news.com.au, “Telstra released its full-year earnings today which show that it has 2.8 million customers on its 4G network, up from 1.5 million it announced in its half-yearly results.” The 4G data traffic in the company increased to around 23% per month.
