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

... 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.

No, however, unless BT do get on with it and flood wire there will be no dormant "dark fibre" fibre to satisfy Sharon's other dream:

"And we see opportunities for “dark fibre”, BT’s dormant cabling that can be used by competitors."
