On paper this looks good but i worry how this will effect costs etc and how the government will have oversight on fibre and where it runs.

I'm more concerned about line rental going up, as openreach will now need to boost their profits.

Well thats what i was meaning with costs, but alot of the cash is via goverment spending. But its things like virgin firbe, see if its in your area andif your like me its not available.

One thing i do wonder, how will this effect the upto advertised speeds. As it stands they are done that way because bt basically controlled it, now openreach is solo could that mean that our upto speeds could change.

As in lets say sky were advertising they had to basically take what bt were taking and go with that, now sky, virgin and the others will be dealing directly with openreach to place there infrastructure.

Doubt it but can always dream.
