Subtending is the process whereby BT will use technoglogy to link the backhaul from several exchanges in an area, thereby reducing the overall costs. This has meant that some exchanges have had their trigger level reduced, but unfortunately the use of the new technology has meant a longer period of time is needed to enable the exchanges.
