Re: Sharon White...where is the fibre backhaul for 5G?

...without more rollout of FTTP in the local loop by Openreach, it won't happen...

Without getting into an FTTC v FTTP debate are you suggesting the Openreach should flood - wire the UK with fibre on the basis that what might be a small percentage of it gets rented by 5G providers?

That might be the best technical solution, but it is not one that recognises financial realities.
