"If these other companies like sky etc want 'free rein' on the network, they need to actually bloody invest in it."

As long as BT owns Openreach, they CAN'T

A divested Openreach with legal protections against any one entity gaining more than 5% ownership would be possible for them to buy into or enter into joint ventures with.

The reality is that a divested Openreach would be frantically trying to sell its services to these companies (and all other comers) anyway.
