Re: Regulation and the people factor I don't know whats the fuss about leasing dark fiber for FTTH purpose is all about. In India, there are alreay infrastructur companies who are able to connect homes via FTTH at as low as close to £90 & are also leasing the network to multiple operators.

Regulation and the people factor ISPs, mobile operators, local government orgs etc see benefits in the dark fiber model and CityFibre is gaining success and traction -- but that doesn't mean there aren't major roadblocks in the way.

Those roadblocks are regulation -- and there is a real tussle ongoing over what is regulated and what UK regulator Ofcom thinks is appropriate in the dark fiber market -- and the role of significant individuals in the various decision-making processes, from regulators to customers to competitors.

Technology and service development/delivery are not the deciding factors in CityFibre's fate, I feel.
