Telecom alliance Global One is in talks with Telstra of Australia and KDD of Japan as a possible Asian partner, Bloomberg reports.

Both telcos are former members of WorldPartners, an international telecom consortium that hit hard times after major partner AT&T left WorldPartners to enter into a separate global alliance with British Telecom. Global One consists of Deutsche Telekom, France Telecom and Sprint.
