Ofcom Website | A new regulatory approach for fixed telecommunications

Ofcom Website | A new regulatory approach for fixed telecommunications

Ofcom have done a deal with BT to make BT Wholesale (BTW) "fairer" to the competition. They haven't gone the whole hog and forced BTW to be a completely seperate company, but they'll have different incentives to BT (Retail). It will stil be run by the same board of directors etc.

This is meant to make BTW more transparent and offer services to any operator at the same rate as to BT (Retail). This also applies to BT's 21CN.

BTW will be expected to share information about what it's doing rather than reactively tell the competition what its done.

Whether it actually makes a difference is yet to be seen, BTW will be ranamed and move out of BT's current offices, but it will still be BT.
