So BT have decided to do the 'right' thing before the regulator forces them into it. Supposed to be happening later this year. It won't affect VM of course but I suspect some other ISPs will be rubbing their hands in glee.
According to the BBC report "Openreach will still be 100% owned by BT who will set its annual budget. Openreach will have its own board and make its own investment decisions"

This has been a fiasco. And a serious disservice to the British population, especially those in rural areas.
But hey, as long as those in the South of England and more importantly, corporate shareholders are well served, stuff any one who has the audacity to move North of the Watford gap. Or South of Guildford.
With FO companies hungry for the large conurbations, the situation will only get worse.
