Point Topic published the results of UK broadband market survey. There are over 200 ISPs which buy lines on a wholesale basis from BT Wholesale and a further 100 to 200 which buy through wholesale ISPs such as Telefonica, Griffin, Netservices and Brightview. Some higher profile ISPs (Virgin, UK Online) are wholly owned brands operated by companies in the list below (NTL and EasyNet, in these two cases respectively), so they do not appear separately below. The ?Other ISPs? total of something around 150,000 to 200,000, includes fixed wireless access, satellite broadband and the many smaller ISPs which are served by BT Wholesale or wholesale ISPs, themselves supplied by BT Wholesale.
