You might be right, perhaps it is time to consider this. It was an idea that was floated about 15 years ago (contestability) and AA at the time bundled all the Towers into the same Business Group, run on a shoe string, nil investment in the future, nil investment in preventative maintenance. Many a tower is still suffering from the neglect.
It could be that rather than being cost effective it might be a better, more customer focused service, or led to divergent and non-standard practices across the country.
