Telstra and the Australian government seem to jab at each other on a frequent basis in a way that makes disputes between major U.S. telcos and the Federal Communications Commission seem positively genteel.

Telstra says its 3G service has expanded availability enough that the old network can be shut down, but the government says availability isn't as broad as Telstra argues.
