Sloped shoulders


[link to this post]
 
The Bt Group, according to www.btplc.com, comprises:

1. Global Services
2. Business and Public Sector
3. Consumer
4. EE
5. Wholesale & Ventures
6. Openreach
7. Technology, Service & Operations

Am I mistaken in thinking that Plusnet falls under "Consumer"?
Who exactly are Plusnet's "suppliers"? Why are Plusnet so coy about it? It seems like 7 lots of sloped shoulders.

Re>>Who exactly are Plusnet's "suppliers"?
They are usually referring to Wholesale & Openreach

Re>>Why are Plusnet so coy about it?
I assume that BT management have decided that they do not like one branch of BT publicly blaming another branch of BT when things go wrong....

The Plusnet CEO is not on Plusnet's payroll. He is on BT's. There is no way I can think of that influence on such matters as referring to "suppliers" rather than BT Wholesale and Openreach could be detected or prevented.
