Hi, sorry if this has been answered already but I couldn't find it in search.
Does BT plan to, or indeed is it legislated to have to, unbundle the Infinity service?
Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Interesting question don't know the answer but I would think the question wont even arise unbundling as I understand it was due to the old public service telephone company having a monopoly on the copper wires not a situation applying to fibre
It's different in detail to the LLU that we know and love, but essentially - yes, it's already in place.
Other service providers are able to provide a broadband FTTC service using BTs infrastructure, or they can provide their own.
Infinity is essentially an unbundled service. BT Retail buy Generic Ethernet Access from Openreach. They add their wrap(Home Hub, Vision etc) to it and call it Infinity. Any other CP can buy the GEA service from Openreach. BT Retail get exactly the same service from Openreach as any other CP.
http://www.openreach-communications.co.uk/superfast/ says that Talk talk and Sky are trialling the service. They would give the service their own name, i.e. it wouldn't be Infinity.
