Broadband boost promised as Openreach heads for split from BT

Communications regulator Ofcom is pushing ahead with plans to make BT Openreach a separate company, in a bid to improve broadband competition in the UK.

The watchdog said it is proceeding with a formal notification to require the legal separation of Openreach from BT, and said that BT had failed to offer proposals to address competition concerns.

Openreach is the part of BT that maintains the UK's main telecoms network used by rivals such as Sky, TalkTalk, and Vodafone -- and BT's own retail business.

Creating a more independent Openreach is an important part improving broadband quality, the regulator said: "We are disappointed that BT has not yet come forward with proposals that meet our competition concerns.

I am not surprise on this type of arrangement.

There is only ONE Company in-charge of Fibre network island wide.

It is somewhat related to one of the Telco.
Related meaning by as share-holder of the fibre network company.

As a matter of fact, this Telco is also controlled by gv, as the boss is also related to gv chief.
So anything bad comment on this Telco will never surface.

Whereas, my Telco do have many complain on fibre network connection problem.
And most complainers did mentioned that Telco has no network connection problem.

This is nothing new.
