BT is the world's oldest communications company and one of the world's leading communications services companies. It has an extensive global presence and serves customer needs in more than 170 countries.
Virgin already have their network but don't get forced to share it.
Can't wait for Talk Talk & Sky to have there own fibre network and ofcom dictate to them who can use it...BT included. What go's around comes around.
ps im an engineer and actually dug and layed the old copper land lines .these are were the fibre is being and has been placed .
sky will be paying rent for the ducts that any fibre is in lol . the infrastructure is bts lock stock . sky fibre erm 10 years and a few billion later .
Hi budddy the fact BT has all the infrastructue in place to take advantage of that scenario would I am sure draw the attention of ofcom as stomping all over the competition. The people with the mobile masts in their fields and back gardens would be out of pocket and the eyesores themselves might have to come down as the mobile company's go to the wall. It's an interesting possibilty. I see Talk Talk and Sky have finally woken up to the fact they need a fibre presence it the major conurbation's. Big push to establish themselves in York. Don't think they will be looking at the rural area's tho...just cherry picking.
I am pretty sure that the mobile announcement will come with a bit of a change to the normal supplier and this is a big part of it - the movement of traditional mobile voice to data. Its a change that BT is now very prepared for through past and ongoing initiatives. That's the future for communications and no one is better placed. The next few years are going to be so interesting and the odds are stacked firmly with BT making the most of it all. Only time will tell.
