Bulldog to unbundle 200 exchanges by end of year
The Financial Times website in its coverage of the C&W purchase of Bulldog is saying that Bulldog plan to have met a target of 200 unbundled exchanges by the end of the year. Currently Bulldog has 38 exchanges in the Central London area.
If these plans do work out, then it will be a shot in the arm for the unbundling process, particularly as HomeChoice are also on the expansion path again. Though while 200 unbundled exchanges would be a big achievement, to put it into perspective this would be less than 10% of the exchanges currently offering BT Wholesale based services.
If the LLU providers can provide innovative, affordable, quality services that have a mass appeal, then there is every chance that take-up of their services will be enough to drive more roll-out.
