Telstra forecasts annual growth

Plan to cull 12,000 jobs by 2010 will continue

Telstra (ASX: TLS) is expecting a total revenue growth of around 3% a year up until 2010, according to Telstra CEO Sol Trujillo.

In a presentation to the Lehman Brothers Global TMT Conference, held in New York over may, Trujillo announced that Telstra was expecting a total revenue growth of 3-4 percent for this financial year. They are also projecting to maintain that growth up until 2010.

On the flip side, the 2005 plan to cull 12,000 jobs by 2010 will continue. By the end of last year nearly 8,000 jobs had already been lost, and Telstra plans to cut a further 4,000 in the next two years.

Trujillo also informed conference-goers that Telstra is currently the 12th largest telecommunications company in the world.

The company's revenue from fixed-line phones is in decline, whereas its revenue from mobile phones is growing by double digits.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
