Why doesn't it say "owned"? It's poor wording.
That's the trouble with consumer contracts, where you've had no hand in framing them. You look for some wording that you want to find but the other party has not worded them as you would expect.
EDIT: I did think that "This modem is part of the Openreach network" was fairly definitive.
Anyway, I think it is all a moot point. While I'm convinced the property is vested in OR. experience shows that individual OR engs who come to premises just don't care despite the policy of their firm.
