Unbundled Network Elements-Platform (UNE-Platform, UNE-P) - This is comprised of individual parts of an applicable network infrastructure. The FCC ruled that ILECs (incumbent local exchange carriers) are required to provide their competitors access to these, at a discount. Thus their competition can sell telecommunications services without having to install their own lines, presumably increasing competition and lowering consumer cost.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UNE-P
