Re: So Openreach get to pick up the bill?
Is it right to make a dominant provider more dominant by tying rural locations down to one supplier?
This proposed legislation doesn't actually do that. The legislation is only defining the USO framework, not who should provide it. Of course BT are certain to put their hat into the ring (or might be forced to) but in theory at least any CP could choose become a provider if they wanted to. Don't all rush at once :-/
