There is a big telephone company (Telefonica) that once was a

for ISPs. It is funny that you can contract from a few different ISP
providers, when the copper pair is still going to the same exchange as
has been for fifty years. I assume they have inside separate racks for
each new company where they do the splitting. If they do it all... A
nightmare, I have been told, by friends working there. The situation
in many countries has to be very similar, we haven't invented the
technology ;-)

It sounds exactly like how it's done elsewhere - Switzerland, Germany,
Britain. I doubt if they have separate equipment in the exchanges,
it's not necessary.

Its amazing what the equipment manufacturers can do with software.
If you pay the licence fees.

There are two ways to slide easily through life: to believe everything
or to doubt everything; both ways save us from thinking.
