In the same breath, Bell says they want the CRTC to deregulate
copper, as it is no longer essential.
I know right now, that if ULLs were forborne, we would not have a
suitable substitute for our co-locate served customers.
In 5 to 10 years, that might be a different story, but today it is not.
Bell wants the freedom to deploy fibre networks without mandated
wholesale but also wants to de-regulate copper loops while still
using them for their own purposes as long as is convenient simply
because for 99% of the customers today, DSL speeds are what they
choose, and copper loops for now are the most cost effective way to
provide those speeds or just plain dialtone.
A bit of a have your cake & eat it too attitude, which is exactly
what I expect from Bell.
