Deutshe Telekom eyes Australian broadband

Giant German telco incumbent Deutsche Telekom confirmed that it is interested in investing in Australia's broadband market, as part of a consortium that probably would compete with existing broadband players there. DT made its interest known in a letter to an Australian government task force considering proposals for new broadband networks.

This interest looks to be part a larger DT effort to push harder into newer services like IPTV--and possibly new markets outside of Germany--as it continues to lose fixed-line customers at home.
