BT Lashes Out @ Rivals
By: MarkJ - 30 March, 2005 (9:01 AM)

The pressure of Ofcom's Telecoms Review may be getting a bit much for BT's boss Ben Verwaayen as, while speaking to the Financial Times, he told rivals to "get on with life":

On the issue of the wide ranging telecoms review, Verwaayen also believes that BT has done enough to escape a move by Ofcom to seek the break-up of the former monopoly.

Indeed, on the issue of the telecoms review Verwaayen told the FT: "I think Ofcom has done a lot to get the level of discussion going to a level of much more intelligent debate and I think we have done our share by accepting responsibility and then getting on with life. And my invitation to the rest of the industry is the same."

Despite Verwaayen's gloss, there are still plenty in the industry who maintain that BT's dominance of the UK's telecoms sector is bad for competition.
