Thanks Telecom and TelstraClear, for between you

Businesses with bonds to pay off, and shareholders to deliver a dividend

means that even if your margins are good, your quantitative per-customer

putting all that glass in the ground and buying 'spensive juniper routers
to plug it into and move bits along it.
