TradingMarkets.com report that Commander went belly-up on Friday and there are fears for public service phone systems here in Canberra.
- The major disruption from Commander Communications’ failure has hit many government departments and has cast doubt on the company’s employee entitlements. Administrators have advised that Commander will continue to trade as normal, but the collapse adds weight to the argument presented by multinational outsourcing corporations that smaller outsourcers present a high risk and uncertainty.
Sounds like they’re actually still hard at work, but will this make it harder for the smaller service providers to get those juicy contracts?
And did anyone honestly think they’d survive once they lost their Telstra partnership?
UPDATED: Thanks to Deano for pointing out that Commander own iBurst which quite a lot of Canberrans use for the wireless internet.
