Re: Q from the US

Almost...

In the late-nineties, Cable & Wireless did indeed own the consumer cable infrastructure in Derby at least, and I can only presume some other areas too. A few years later, C&W (along with some other cable operatores) sold their consumer cable to NTL, which in turn became VirginMedia in 2007.

C&W continued to operate 'business only' voice and data lines for many years before being recently(ish) being bought-out by Vodafone.
