UK: Ofcom Urges Roll-Out of Super-Fast Broadband [news.bbc.co.uk]
Ofcom has unveiled new proposals to encourage the rollout of super-fast broadband across the UK.

The regulator is proposing that BT's fibre lines are opened so rival firms such as Sky and TalkTalk can provide their own services to consumers.

BT would then be able to set prices for these new wholesale products to enable them to make a fair rate of return.

Ofcom hopes its plans will lead to millions more consumers enjoying speeds of up to 20 megabits per second.



These people should get into the real world. 20Mbs is not super-fast.

So competition to give some people on-line gaming while the rest of us on the end of a copper wire struggle along as before.

Agreed. It'll take quite a while before even this happens. By then, the 20Meg will be classed as slow.

This reminds me a lot of de-regulisation that occurred in the gas and electricity markets. You still receive your power/gas from the same company, yet can opt to be billed by another company (usually for less)
