I am confused by the constant reference by community moderators that Openreach is not BT. I have spoken to several Openreach engineers who are very tongue in cheek about the arrangement. Why dont we come clean about the arrangement put in place in 2006 and let us all get a workable broadband system. The answer"it's not BT" or "it's not Openreach" should not be allowed, Openreach is a wholly owned subsidiary of BT.
Solved! Go to Solution.
openreach is a wholly owned subsidiary of the BT Group as is your ISP BT Retail. however OFCOM specifically ruled that openreach cannot treat Bt Retail any differently from any other ISP - TT, SKY etc. The reference on the forum about BT refers to our ISP BT Retail and not the BT Group
If it was seen that BT Retail received preferential treatment from openreach then the first to report it would be the other ISPs, followed by the publicity of a heavy fine by OFCOM
