Whew…where did you get that nonsense? There here is nothing world class about ‘basic’ ‘passive’ ‘wholesale’ wire. It doesn’t exist because there is absolutely no service model which would make it viable. Who will maintain the infrastructure. That’s where the cost is in delivering service. It’s a 24/7/365 proposition. “Once you have that in place the competition explodes” Really? Documentary evidence is is no where to be found on this assertion. Obviously you’ve never run a network.
