Dave Millett, Founder and Managing Director of telecoms broker, Equinox, talks about Ofcom’s report ruling on whether BT can keep its Openreach broadband arm. BT seems to have escaped the immediate threat of selling off its wholesale arm, but it faces a stricter regulatory straitjacket under wide-ranging proposals which would allow other operators to lay fibre optic lines alongside its network. As the regulator put it: "Openreach needs to change, to behave like an independent company taking its own decisions on budget, investment and strategy, in consultation with the wider industry.” Dave discusses the decision.
