... our policy should be as broad as you say, however to fix past mistakes and buy back parts of Telstra seems too difficult, Telstra will never loosen their grip and the best option at this point is to overbuild their obsolete fixed line network, and keep it public this time much like other critical infrastructure such as roads.

Also to essentially buy out all the mobile networks seems like a monumental task for little benefit. Let's fix other things before we worry about forgoing billions of revenue lost in not having spectrum auctions and having the government running a universal mobile network instead. If anything just start small as an extra provider serving regional blackspots that commercial networks can roam onto, rather than give free money to commercial networks to build their network for them. Could work on the same backend/expertise as NBN fixed wireless
