The information technology sub-sector contains about 50,000 businesses ranging from micro employers to large companies. This does not include IT employers that are in non-IT organisations.
Although there are some large organisations, a lot of these businesses are micro or small employers, with only a few staff.
Telecommunications: There are about 1,000 employers in the telecommunications sector and less than 100 of those employers employ more than 20 people.
There are three major companies in the Australian telecommunications services industry, with a workforce of 75,000.
96,000 people work in the telecommunications sector, and this number is expected to increase by 6.6% to 102,800 by 2020.
