Australia's Telstra considers IPTV, yet again

Australian operator Telstra has put out a call to IPTV vendors for the third time, as it seeks the technology to enable a fixed and mobile TV solution for its subscribers. The move comes as speculation rises that the operator will bail on its participation in the upcoming Channel B spectrum auction in the country. Telstra first announced IPTV intentions under Ziggy Switkowski and then again as CEO Sol Trujillo took over. The Trujillo plan included a now defunct initiative to build a $4 billion residential high-speed network that would carry IPTV services.
