Singtel Optus do have an interest in DoD critical infrastructure - from its Aussat roots. It is apparent that the armies of Singapore have not invaded Australia because of access to this data.

This argument came up in the press during the OPEL planning, where it was also a non-event and nothing more than a distraction in the media.

It might be worth saving this thread so you can refer back to it if Huawei is selected as a vendor for NBN and accused of being potential Chinese spies for the 100th time.
