In general, the chief executive focused on the positives to come out of the natural disaster for AAPT. 'What I've found to be brutally honest is that our Qld customers have been very understanding and supportive in what we've done,' he said, noting AAPT's staff had rallied together in the crisis and had done an outstanding job in very difficult circumstances - noting especially the efforts of engineers working on the fibre effort.
AAPT will send more staff to the area today to relief employees who have been working around the clock, and Broad himself will be in Queensland 'hopefully next week' to see staff and make personal contact with many of the key customers. And the chief executive also had a word for his colleagues at other companies.
'I think the fact is the telco industry came together amazingly well to help solve all of our problems,' he said.
