The article analyzes the sustainability of the growing local loop unbundling (LLU) service in Europe. In August 2006, satellite broadcaster BSkyB joined Great Britain's LLU market amid concerns over heightened broadband competition. Point Topic CEO Tim Johnson states that expectations for next year could be undesirable, and will be characterized by low growth and general demoralization. He adds that more established players will want to exit the market before it overheats to an unbearable degree.
