A BT spokeswoman said the company was "disturbed" by an MPs' report that claimed the government's rural broadband scheme was mismanaged and left the internet provider with a near monopoly.
We are disturbed by today's report, which we believe is simply wrong and fails to take on board a point-by-point correction we sent to the committee several weeks ago.
We have been transparent from the start and willing to invest when others have not.
It is therefore mystifying that we are being criticised for accepting onerous terms in exchange for public subsidy - terms which drove others away.
The taxpayer is undoubtedly getting value for money.
BT faces a payback period of around 15 years on its rural broadband investments in spite of the subsidies available.
