Cable & Wireless: Breaking up is not so hard to do

Over the weekend the Observer broke another story about the potential break up of the UKs No.1 Alternative Telco.

CW has been operating separate Consumer, National and International business strategies for some years and the break up would not be unthinkable.

Focus on high value customers core operations and improving utilisation of assets worked well for the International business, the UKs more generalist operation was seen as holding them back.

Now the UK operation is taking a more business like approach; i.e. selling the right products to the right customers and making a profit on each one.

So, maybe it is time to give the UK their head and let them run things.
