Clueless where to shove this: BTwant to merge Wholesale into Openreach

The Daily Telegraph  reports that to save costs BT Group would like to merger its Wholesale division in to Openreach.
No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

From Plusnet customer point of view it doesn't seem a bad idea as it takes one step out of problem solving on ADSL where at present I believe it goes
Customer - Plusnet - BT Wholesake - BT Openreach

As long as we don't get a BT Management Clone (MBA type) looking at PlusNet Support and deciding it is too good. That is just the type of thing to happen during merger process when some Pointy Head wants to make a name for his/herself.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

MBA type, don't you rate them?
When a work colleague left to do a MBA at LSE 30 years ago they meant something but nowadays when every university and every Tom, dick and Harry doing them they probably been devalued.

BT merging with BT, sounds as daft as Bell Canada buying out Bell-Aliant who bought out Ontera over in Canada, makes for a confusing situation... Huh
Maybe someday BT'll merge with the Post Office to form the GPO and we'll all go back to rotary dial telephones.... Grin

It'd be fun going back to Strowger exchanges, has a better sense of achievement that the call made it all the way through the old click & bang system... Grin
