Abstract

This paper focuses on functional separation. After reviewing the literature on separation in its various guises and describing the circumstances that culminated in the creation of Openreach in the UK, the paper focuses on the implementation of the undertakings. It is shown that difficulties have been encountered in the implementation of the undertakings, and that while the relationship between BT and other service providers may have improved, tensions remain.
