Default ntl and Telewest combine to form NTL Incorporated...

"Former NTL stockholders now around roughly 75% of the combined company, and
Telewest stockholders the other 25%. This combination has made NTL
Incorporated the largest provider of residential broadband in the UK, and
the UK's leading triple play provider. Currently services are provided to
around five million customers, and the combined network covers more than 12
million homes, ie. around 50% of UK households and 85% of UK businesses."

And BT covers 24 million plus regardless of how remote they are and how
unattractive they may be financially to maintain. Makes NTL look like they
are ****ing in the wind really.....

Possibly a stupid question but howcome BT have to allow other providers
(internet, phone) access to their network and the cable companies do not?
Especially now NTL has combined with Telewest creating a very large company?

BT is a monopoly provider in many areas. NTL and YouBlunder is in
competition.

Anywhere NTL operates also has BT available, but you can't say the
reverse.

competition.

reverse.


What this means is that in in areas where there is already direct
competition, BT still has to make its local loop available to others, to
increase the competition even further. NTL-Telewest don't have to make
their local loop available at all. More importantly their nice high
bandwidth coax cable remains solely for their own use too.

The areas where BT has no direct competition are those the cable
companies thought it uneconomic. There, few are interested in
BT's local loop since they too feel it not worth competing.

The net effect is that BT's local loop tends to be used by competitors
only in areas where competition already exists.
