TinyTim: They mean that only one company gets to operate the fibre access network - they don't mean other operators can't build their own networks. And the price they sell access for is regulated so there are no monopoly rents.
Ok that just doesn't make any sense at all.
You're saying that they're suggesting they'll deliver a cost+ price? But how with they caculate that cost? How do they factor technology up grades? How do they factor market growth? Should I have read the next 15 pages?
Why use the word monopoly then?
How would the network work if it was operated by more than one company anyway?
Who owns this company? Does it become like SCX, owned by Telcos who just hold up the price of capacity and hold down the volume of capacity?
Sorry, but it's sure sounding like epic fail stuff to me... or have I just missed something?
