I assumed by the way they behaved that Ofcom _wanted_ a monopoly. They don't you say??
O.k. Heres an idea then. Hows about splitting BT in two? Put the copper cables in one company and let the rest of it compete on the same terms as everyone else. You'll soon see some competition.
Why the fuck do I have to pay a 13 pound monthly tax to BT for a phone line that I simply dont wan't, in order to receive BB from someone else? Split off the infrastructure, and you'll start seeing some creative pricing in the market. How about £5 a month for a line lease that allows BB but not phone? Pay more if you actually want landline calls. Ofcom are not an industry regulator. Theyre a lobby group for the telcos.
