Hi All Just Seen this: [quote="ISPs tussle over broadband access"] Internet service providers have asked the government to intervene over the price being set to give them access to BT's physical infrastructure. Giving rivals access to BT ducts and poles is seen as a crucial element to get fast broadband to rural areas. But ISPs argue that the prices set by BT are four to five times higher than their underlying costs. BT said that its prices were reasonable and laid down the gauntlet to rivals. "The fact is our proposed prices for duct access compare very well with European averages," the telco said in a statement.
