Deregulating the UK’s wholesale broadband markets: 70% of the country to be liberalised | Ofcom

Deregulating the UK’s wholesale broadband markets: 70% of the country to be liberalised | Ofcom

Ofcom is going to lift the obligations on the encumbent operators where there are 4 or broadband operators offering service. In the areas where there isn't sufficient competition, Ofcom will maintain the SMP (significant market power) rules.

This will mean that in 70% of the UK SMP conditions will be lifted, which really means BT.

BT could now increase (wholesale) pricing for broadband in those areas.
