that's part of what the original (Labor) NBN was supposed to do.
public-owned and managed infrastructure, with numerous private service
providers on top all using the same infrastructure as a level playing

might have to compete on service or quality or innovation rather than
customer lock-in and a plethora of product confusion), so it had to die.
