Uhm, how many pan-European _fiber_ owners is there? Not that many. Most
of  that over capacity was bought from KQ in Europe...
COLT, Telia, Dynergy, BT Ignite [I think], Level 3, LDcom, others.
KQ was excellent at marketing themselves as the only company who
had pan-European fibre but the reality is far different.
Well, several of the companies you mention above where actually large customers of KQ. Although you are right in that they had pices of the network themselves. I agree with you that KQ marketing was a stroy in itslef, but for pan-European fiber assets, there are very few own it all.
