Next gen fixed network infrastructure We could debate loop unbundling and sub-loop but there is virtue and value in seeing deployment of new network fibre to kerb / fibre to home If you leave the market to do it it's not enough and it won't happen At a policy level we need to ask if we're happy to leave a large chunk (30%???) of people without access or if we're not Some of the ideas of getting BT to open up etc would have problems down the line

3.7.4. Q: (aston FM): we find it hard to compete with commercial radio stations as we don't have the (band)width are you going to give is more (spectrum) for commercial radio Lots in the report, DAB = more spectrum for community radio (I personally see some problems with the DAB stuff, but like this in principal)

3.7.6. Q: from Digital Media Prof from ???: competition and same old media orgs getting the most out of this Small guys need a fair chance, but also we need that to be fair both ways (OK I get this point about not giving them too much but let's face it they need more opportunities and they do need more support... it's a pretty unfair playing field)
