Why isn't BT listening to Mr Maran?

Wonder why BT is going all out to promote its LLU offerings! Especially after Mr Dayanidhi Maran, while speaking at the Telecomm India ’04 International Conference in Mumbai on October 25, 2004, said this:
"Although it [LLU] sounded attractive, we have to be more cautious in unbundling. It has stopped in the US too. Also, in India, PC penetration is low."
And, Mr Prabir Purkayastha, writing in People's Democracy, the CPI (M) publication, also seems to be living in Mr Maran's world:
"This last mile unbundling had led to a host of problems wherever it has been tried. Both in UK and in the US, this has been tried. As incumbent telephone companies are also Internet service providers, regulatory action to open their local loop leads to physical obstruction by the incumbent."
