Labour: Free British broadband for country if we win general election

I get the 'nationalise openretch' part - it's labour's policy to nationalise everything - you don't have to agree with it (I don't) but that's what they do. But what I don't get is the bit about nationalising BT retail and BT consumer. That's going to kill a lot of companies who actually offer a better service than BT retails and BT consumer (which is a lot, especially for business). What about the thousands of companies in contracts? It's like the took a noble idea (get britain all connected to Fibre), added a Labour spin (we will pay entirely for it) and the mess it up by saying 'Free broadband for all'. Just because it's fibre doesn't mean it's any good.
