£160m ploughed into 5G is a fair sum. Shame the tech doesn't really exist

"Just because the mobile operator has a commercial contract with BTWholesale for a Fibre backhaul for its Cell, doesn't mean it can't be the same backhaul feeding residential/business premises in the local loop."

Broadband networks are built to different performance characteristics than infrastructure ones. They go to different places. I'd be seriously annoyed to find my infrastructure backhaul sharing network space with broadband customers. I pay more because I need a better service. Zero packet loss, five nines uptime, three hour repair guarantee.

Your vision sees businesses requiring high performance networks being unable to have them, or it requires people needing a consumer product to pay ten times what they do today. Which is it?
