E.g. ESHDSL • How to manage infrastructure-based competition e.g. DSLAMs in MDU basements • Potential cross-talk interference with existing services • 25Mbps threshold and open-access requirements • Free-for-all? Scope for Codes? • Interim operating arrangements when changing broadband deployment states
  7. 7.
