      According to this Wikipedia page BTO generates most of the BT Groups profits. See under 'Criticisms' and the side panel - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Openreach I am certain this is the main reason for BT wanting to hang on to it. BTO's profits help underpin BT's other ventures

      You only need to go as far as page 5 to find BTO generates 34% of Earnings before interest, taxes. A huge chunk of BT's income. No wonder they don't want to part with it!

      Simples...

      It should be a stand alone company as is National Grid plc. Their job is to transport electricity and gas, they don't sell or produce either. They just build and maintain the networks and charge for that, a percentage of your gas and electricity bill. Now why can't we have something like that for Broadband/Telecoms?

      and also in regard to saying other companies like Sky and Talk Talk dont invest money into Openreach well how could they currently as without seperation they would effectively also be investing in BT's retail side which is their direct competitor for TV/Broadband and so not a viable thing to do, if Openreach was its own company that would be a whole different playing field altogether.
