Investment in the UK’s telecoms infrastructure is needed to meet growing and future demand for ultrafast broadband. Future broadband networks should provide choice, value and quality. Ofcom’s approach to achieving that has been through encouraging competition between different networks.
This document sets out our detailed plans for regulation from April 2021 of the fixed telecoms markets that underpin broadband, mobile and business connections.
Our aim is to create the best possible conditions for companies to invest in ultrafast broadband so customers in all parts of the UK can enjoy the benefits it provides, while protecting customers as the UK transitions to new, faster fibre networks.
We will publish our decision statement before the new regulation will take effect in April 2021. This review does not cover the Hull area, which will be subject to a separate consultation.
In response to a query from Openreach, we have today published a clarification (PDF, 171.9 KB) on our proposed approach to setting prices for dark fibre services.
