French term or phrase: dégroupage de la paire de cuivre
From article on telecommunications

Dans les télécommunications fixes, les axes de développement se dessinent avec la concurrence sur l'accès internet à haut-débit ADSL. Le processus de dégroupage de la paire de cuivre est en bonne voie en Europe après un démarrage des plus lents.

Explanation:
dégroupage can be "unpacking", but this seems to have to do with hardware.

Explanation:
In this telecommunications context, 'unbundling' is the dedicated term, I think you'll find — all the rage at the moment, of course!

Strictly speaking, the term is so specific that in this context, there's really no need to add the bit about the copper line; however, in other, less clear-cut contexts, it might be needed.
See this very informative Wikipedia article:
