Ofcom exists to make communications markets work for everyone.
To achieve this, we are proposing three main goals: to promote competition and ensure that markets work effectively for consumers; to secure standards and improve quality; and to protect consumers from harm. Our proposed Annual Plan highlights some of the key work areas that we will seek to deliver in order to meet these goals, across the UK and its nations, in 2017/18. We also outline our broader ongoing work to support these goals, and how we will work for consumers across the UK’s nations.
We will publish our final Annual Plan for 2017/18 in March 2017. The final Plan will take into account responses from stakeholders to the proposed Plan. The closing date for consultation responses to our proposed Annual Plan is 7 February 2017.
Ofcom is holding public meetings across the UK to hear people's views on its proposed Annual Plan for 2017/18.
The meetings will provide an opportunity for anyone with an interest in the regulation of the communications markets to discuss Ofcom's approach. Each meeting will begin with a brief presentation, after which there will be an opportunity to comment and ask questions.
All meetings, which include a panel of Ofcom experts, are open and free of charge.
