Consultation: Promoting investment and competition in fibre networks

  • Start: 11 December 2018
  • Status: Closed
  • End: 26 February 2019

Our strategy is to promote investment and competition in fibre networks. However, it is recognised that investment and competition will vary by geography. We therefore believe that regulation should also vary by geography.

This consultation document sets out our initial views on how to define geographic markets from 2021, when we carry out our next review of wholesale telecoms networks. It builds on our strategic policy position, published in July 2018.

We plan to consult on a full set of market proposals, including market definition, market power assessment and remedies for fixed network services, by autumn 2019.

Update 26 April 2019: Supplement to illustrative assessment

Following a stakeholder request, we have today published the results of our illustrative assessment for each Nation of the UK and the whole of UK.
