Cloud albeido can increase or decrease temperatures, it is very dependent on the type of clouds, and is an active area of climate change research.
Increased cloud cover means more water vapor which traps heat and reduces the loss of heat at night.
However, more clouds means more radiation reflected back into space, lowering temps.
Clouds are part of a very complicated feedback system.
As mentioned before, OpenReach should have been properly farmed off from BT years ago. If this had happened and all telecoms providers made to pay into the pot to use it, there wouldn't have been any need for unbundled exchanges which are basically duplication of equipment.
Everyone paying their share to use the same network would have resulted in a better network and fibre rollout years ago.
