Re: What is the right answer to how to run National Infrastructure?

" BT will procrastinate until forced to because they need to justify £16.50 line rental for every household regardless of the quality of the 100 pairs of bundled cables even when the consumer ( in the shape of public 100% subsidies) is paying for the infrastructure to the cabinet."

Minor nit: BT Openreach line rental is a lot less than £16, it's actually less than £10 and has been there or thereabouts for the last five years . Line rental ends up at £16 or so when the big telcos (BT Retail and friends) all add an identically-priced near-unavoidable "calls package". Once upon a time (say 2008) there didn't used to be a huge gap between Openreach line rental and retail line rental. Now there is. Source:
