As I have said in my previous emails, Openreach is not a communications provider. We only maintain and install the network.
Why do I think it is a lie? Well, let's look at what a "communications provider" is exactly...
Communications Act 2003 section 405: “communications provider” means a person who (within the meaning of section 32(4)) provides an electronic communications network or an electronic communications service;
So let's look at 32(4): In this Act references to the provision of an electronic communications network include references to its establishment, maintenance or operation;
To me that is crystal clear that someone that simply maintains and installs [establishes] the network is categorically a "communications provider" by legal definition. Did I get that wrong?
What puzzles me is why they tell these lies - what have they got to gain by it? And if they do have something too gain by it, does that make the lie actually criminal fraud?
P.S. This is after he confirmed (eventually) that "Openreach" is UK company 1800000, so he is basically saying that British Telecommunications plc, company 1800000, is not a communications provider!
