Re: links and processes ... for dealing with BT openreach

"they have all the links and processes in place for dealing with BT openreach and the like."

Who has all the links and processes for BT Openreach etc?

Three don't.

And nor do PCCW or Netvigator or Now Broadband or Relish or UK Broadband or whatever they'll be called next week. They were (are? allegedly?) *fixed wireless* broadband providers, who started their UK career by buying up all the UK fixed wireless access broadband licences in post-auction deals, and then doing nothing with the licences, for years. See e.g.

Some analysis of that, and the mysterious role of the Hutchison companies in this picture, would be welcome in the next article on this subject.
