Resource update - H1 2004 unbundling stats available
ECTA has today released the latest update in its immensely helpful monitoring of unbundled lines. France leads the way in absolute numbers, as we already knew, but in terms of unbundled lines as a percentage of total DSL, the Netherlands and Finland share the lead at 23%, with France at 16%, and Sweden and Denmark in joint third at 14%. The UK number is not large enough to be measurable, which we also knew, but as with France, a lot can change in a year. France went from 65k to 731k in the space of a year, as a result of price cuts and innovative product offerings. We think a similar process is beginning to play out in the UK. ECTA's survey is available as an Excel download here (http://www.ectaportal.com/uploads/BroadbandScorecardQ22004.xls).
