German term or phrase: entbündelten...
Another bit about phone companies taking over fixed-line networks:

"Anfang Juli 2000 gab es bereits 82 Vertrge zwischen XXX und ihren Wettbewerbern ber den Zugang zur entbndelten TAL (Teilnehmeranschlussleitung)..."

By early July 2000 there had already been 82 agreements/contracts (?) between XXX and its rivals regarding access to the "bundled" Subscriber Access Line.

How do we render "entbndeln", and what does it mean?!

Thanks

unbundled


Explanation:
IMHO bundled is wrong, it must be unbundled in the sense that the monoply of the state telco is being cut back and it has to let other lines into its exchanges.
