Re: iPhone XS eSIM

New information is now emerging that this issue is like a case of the big 4 banks holding out on Apple pay like they did because they wanted to only negotiate with Apple as one group and the ACCC said no. In this case carriers such as boost mobile are now applying pressure on the big three carriers within Australia i.e. Telstra, Optus and Vodaphone to immediately support and offer esim in the devices.

The Telcos are currently holding out under the guise of "there isn't a technology standard in place being used by all devices or all devices made by each manufacturer for using esim" This is not the truth, the truth is Telstra and the other two don't want people using their SIM cards as the one they use for calls and then buying say a kogan some for data because they would be missing out on $$$.

However the ACCC has applications before it to apply pressure and then force the three major Australian telcos to support and offer esim effective immediate

Off topic a bit, but responding to your comment, CBA are introducing Apple Pay as we speak..Should be available by the end of January to all CBA customers...

probably to distract customers from the heat they recently took at the Royal Commission and probably because they got to a point where they couldn't handle auto dialers calling them every day demanding Apple Pay hahahaha

I really hope so. It is bloody frustrating as a consumer to be stuffed around like this ny the Telcos.

Fingers crossed they are forced in to supporting esim. Don’t really want to go back to android for dual sim but would also like the ability to have both a Telstra and Optus sim in so I mostly always have reception.

Cba supporting Apple Pay will be nice too.
