PT responds to broadband broadside

19 Oct 2005

A study commissioned by the country’s independent competition regulator claimed that low broadband usage would persist unless competition in the sector improved. It recommended that PT’s fixed line and broadband network businesses be separated. According to a Reuters report, however, PT says it is “perplexed” by the claims and adds that the study uses methods which are “not adequate”.
