Business opinion on LLU

The Dom Post has a poll of Wellington businesses every two months. Being a poll of business owners they tend to support good centre-right policies such as lower taxation, reform the RMA etc.

How-ever one thing Labour has done they massively approve of. The Government’s decisions on local loop unbundling are supported by 86% of business with only 7% against. That is huge, and demonstrates how welcome the package is.

Now of course mere popularity alone is not a good reason to do something, but it does say something when you have such over-whelming support from the sector which is usually most oppossed to regulation.

Incidentially the Government introduce the Telecommunications Amendment Bill yesterday, which the Herald reports on here. I’ve not yet had time to do more than a quick read of it.
