ABSTRACT
This article reports on the plan of Wanadoo to build its own broadband network through local-loop unbundling, as of November 2004. The plan is aimed at supporting Great Britain Office of Communication's (Ofcom) efforts to force British Telecommunications into treating rivals fairly. Stephen Carter, CEO of Ofcom, outlined new proposals in the second phase of its Strategic Review of Telecoms. It will involve forcing through changes in British Telecommunications' internal structures and how it deals with its rivals. The wholesale arm will be forced to offer the same products to rival firms as it offers to BT Retail. Wanadoo described the new framework as very positive. British Telecommunications said it was pleased with the direction outlined in the strategic review and CEO Ben Verwaayen promised to engage with Ofcom and the industry.
