    Non of the telco's will be allowed to own the NBN, the Government hasn't spent all our money to break Telstra up, just to allow it to become vertically intergrated again.

    That sounds more like it. And thats what I was meaning by my previous comment. Telstra is not going to roll over and get eaten away. They have to do something to keep in the game. It was obvious when they announced the NBN that long term Telstra would try to buy it.
    In a similar vein Transurban will keep doing upgrades to Citilink so it can extend and extend the contract. They were never going to "hand over" the road after the end of the first contract.

    I doubt Telstra will be allowed to buy the NBN, however I will be buying some if the downtrend takes them to the $2.80 region, on the back of the 5G roll out.

    ....and a chart, maybe TLS will do a double bottom and head into a consolidating sideways channel for a bit. Could be a good buying op coming up for those who don't totally hate TLS that is! :)

    So it turns out that David Murray was right after all. But, by golly, I and many others here made a lot of money out of TLS. I didn't get out as early as I should have and as early as wiser minds on these fora suggested, but it was a great ride! Special thanks to Tony Abbott!

    I'm no Telstra fan but, if they split and if the wholesale section picks up the NBN and if the retail section has the 5g, and if the ACCC let's them get away with it.
    What a great buy. Lol

    Yes I had them, sold pre the plunge, but still think they at some time, will be a good stable income stock.
    I just have to work out what that income will be. Lol

    OMG Dare I post this? With the withdrawal of competitors to establish a rival 5G network, TLS price has jumped. The chart is showing a bullish basing pattern. I've put the level at 3.30.

    Good posting Peter2.
    I am optimistic on Thursday result news.
    Technically, with the banks and few others have been shy to attract bulls, with iron ore miners (sadly taking leverage of Vale's tailing dam disaster) and TLS are attractive options for the investors.
    Cheers

    Hi @Boggo
    Another nice chart published with optimism on TLS. Feeling good as a holder .
    Not being a chartist, can not pretend to be knowing the difference on the chart you have presented and the one I saw from Commsec Data. Are we seeing different graphs here. Not an issue, so long TLS prices rise higher and I get comfortable to balance my rest :)

    Wow,

    well, a long affair with this stock I have had. Hate it, love it, hate it and on and on it goes.
    T1 back in the dark ages like most government floats, a steal, then T3 was rubbish.

    Back in 2000 in a stupid tech boom ... up over $9- I think it stunk, and a long long wait till future fund stupidly dumped its holding at $2.60 ish and then, THEN NBN was a great deal with the 30 plus cents for along time fully franked at over 10% yield and then 13% with credits, one could NOT ignore it.

    I sold out, early, as I tend to do and amazed it went over 20% higher up over $6- whilst the NBN and underlying ground was evaporating.

    Now we are here, 2019. NBN is what it is, an expensive joke. Seriously a joke and the write-down the government is going to eat will make anyone cry.

    Technology advances and with mobile broadband in the middle of nowhere, by Telstra at 50 MBS v NBN not a hell of a lot faster and sucky coverage, TLS eventually will prevail. NOT for a while however !!

    I suspect at some stage NBN is taken over by TLS and the folly of a goverment run bureaucracy, called the NBN with incompetence in the extreme will be dumped as a bad joke.

    Even if this does NOT occur, the 5G v the 4G 50 MPS .... will soon be lightening fast 200 MBS plus and NBN a whiote elephant in many respects.

    For NOW, TLS in my opinion NOT a BUY. The rally when TPG or whomever it was that was going to build a mobile network pulled out was IDIOTIC. So so so stupid the market at times always amazes me. The stock impact, on TLS earnings was MINIMAL and the stock rallies over 10%. For NOW, an opinion is that TLS struggles with dividend income and the price here even though its off 2% at 3.14 is STILL 10% too high.

    TELCO's are risky and at this price, at a 16 cent dividend IT SUCKS WIND. The rally from 2.80 to 3.20 was always stupid when this result was always on the cards and expected. UNTIL the share price represents a dividend close to 6% or $2.80, or LOWER I am not a fan and will just watch and wait.


    Good Luck
    Mark K

    Pretty well sums up my thoughts kahuna, 5G will decimate NBN, then NBN will just become pay T.V which Telstra will pick up for a song.
    White elephants all around, the sooner the whole sad NBN story, gets put into the history books the better.
    A waste of taxpayers money, that is now causing hand wringing Governments, to scrounge around in the $hit pit to pay it off. Absolute disgrace, the whole sham.
    The Government would be better off buying back Telstra, than keep throwing taxpayer money at the telco's to upgrade their infrastructure. IMO

    Hahah ... buy it back ? Hell no, it would be worthless within a few years.

    One has to love technology and 5G and a few years, NBN is, what was cutting edge like my IMB AT with 624k ram !! Or my first ZX sinclair 81 PC.

    I do think there is value, somewhere, but not for some time.

    Cheers

    The taxpayer will be funding the upgrade of the NBN, to 5G, so the telco's can charge us more again.Lol
    Also 5G will be required for autonomous cars, and we know who will be paying for it, jeez we are a bunch of muppets.
    NBN the biggest waste of taxpayer money, in history. lol

    The only value Telstra's going to have, is the fibre backbone, in 10 years time.
    Just my opinion.
