Remove Core Telecoms Infrastructure Away From BT

When BT was privatised, a large amount of public asset, namely the telecoms arm of the GPO passed over to the private sector. This then duly benefitted those who were able to purchase shares in BT.

When the Gas and Electricity markets were deregulated. A new company called Transco was created to handle the infrastructure.

There should be an organization similar to Transco for the country's telecoms infrastructure. Openreach does not fill this criteria as it is ultimately owned by BT.
