Ofcom is proposing to create conditions to improve retail competition in the fixed telecoms markets in the Hull Area, through our wholesale regulation of KCOM.
Our strategy for fixed telecoms markets is to promote competition and investment to deliver better broadband and mobile services wherever people live or work. In the Hull Area, we propose to focus our regulation on encouraging competing providers to enter the market.
Our consultation sets out our proposals for regulation of the wholesale local access and wholesale leased lines access services markets in the Hull Area from April 2021. These underpin broadband, mobile and business connections. We also set out how we plan to deregulate the wholesale broadband access and fixed voice markets.
