Which is the largest? Telstra?
The outcome is in line with the assumption made in Question 1. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, governments implemented lockdown measures to contain the spread of coronavirus. People were forced to adopt stay-at-home and work-from-home, then they required more data and faster speed in mobile and broadband services to sustain the new way of working or entertaining. Greater demand has generated higher service revenue for the network provider.

The Sydney Airport is one of the victims, as the temporary service suspension affected its operational cash flow. This would further hinder the financial health of the company.
