Re: Promise everything ....
I think everyone knows what you were commenting on :D
Okay, under what legislation would the European Commission be able to prevent a national regulator from imposing conditions on a company operating in a national market? Note, it's not really up to the deliberately toothless OfCom to decide whether OpenReach should be spun out of British Telecom, that would be for the monopolies commission. OfCom should be encouraging unbundling by making sure that there is a competitive market for unbundling (as in France) or alternative suppliers (as in Germany) through setting the prices and conditions of use of BT's network.
Though there are many arguments for splitting up the ownership of the infrastructure from running services on it. And many precedents for doing this in things like the energy markets (managed in Germany by a far beefier network regulator).
