Did Vodafone finally buy Cable & Wireless LLU?

[link to this post]
According to this on Demon's website, it shows Vodafone's Newbury address. So does that mean that Vodafone were successful in their bid to acquire C&W LLU network last year? Yet at the same time Demon state

"Bought by THUS in 1998, Demon is now part of the Cable&Wireless Worldwide family of businesses."

Perhaps C&W LLU is still allowed to exist but under Vodafone's ownership? What about Vodafone's ADSL2+ fixed line business broadband (link)...does that operate on BT 21CN service or C&W LLU ?

All very confusing frown

AFAIK the sale went ahead

So its vodafone, C&W and then Thus and then Demon

So the vodafone product (if that page is live) is probably a C&W LLU service, possible run as a white label service by Thus/Demon.

Though previously Vodafone did sell off its old fixed line broadband customer base, a year or so before buying C&W
