Article by

Ofcom has published revised proposals on certain aspects of how it plans to regulate BT’s wholesale services between April 2021 and March 2026. This is a further consultation to the proposals published in January and February 2020, which are designed to support competition and investment in faster fibre networks while protecting customers.

Having considered responses to the January and February consultations, Ofcom is now re-consulting on some changes to the proposals, including:

  • pricing for physical infrastructure access and single order generic ethernet access;
  • pricing and implementation for dark fibre; and
  • regulatory reporting requirements.

The further consultation closes on 8 December 2020 and Ofcom intends to publish its final decisions before April 2020 as part of its wholesale fixed telecoms market review statement. To access the consultation, click here.
