Interesting costiing

TalkTalk were planning on installing 3 million 'full fat fibre' links for 1.5 Bn. That wouldn't perhaps be in nice easy-to-reach urban areas? Cherry-picking? Leaving the rather more expensive rural stuff to Openreach. And then complaining that Openreach are expensive. If Labour (or anyone) are serious then they should require than everyone should offer a service everywhere, then leave them to fight about who lays the fibre and how much they charge each other. Or have a publicly-owned network? Turn Openreach into a not-for-profit community interest company?
