"If I were to identify one main issue with the consultation, it's that it's not exactly what it purports to be: a public consultation."
1 / 6
"For a consultation to be truly public, the questions need to be formulated to allow all interested stakeholders to provide their input."
2 / 6
"If we focus on the ‘fair share’, section four of the questionnaire, I honestly doubt that most of the people are able to answer most or any of the questions in any meaningful or useful way."
3 / 6
"None of these consultation questions are addressed to people in the public. Instead, they seem to be very much addressed at only one class of stakeholders: the telcos."
4 / 6
"The whole questionnaire reads very much like an exercise in begging the question: it presupposes that a ‘fair share’ mechanism should be introduced, and that the only relevant questions that need to be addressed are how much should the compensation be and how it should be paid."
5 / 6
"The question we should be asking is not so much how, but whether we should have such a thing as a ‘fair share’ mechanism at all. That's what the questionnaire should focus on."
