Statement: Existing Openreach FTTP offers with geographic pricing

  • Start: 18 March 2021
  • Status: Statement published
  • End: 29 April 2021

Statement published 2 July 2021

In the wholesale fixed telecoms market review (WFTMR) statement, we decided to prohibit geographic pricing for some services to address our concern that Openreach could use targeted discounts to undermine new alternative network build. Openreach can apply to us for consent to use different geographic prices where this would otherwise be prohibited.

At the time of the WFTMR statement, Openreach had three live offers which result in differences in rental pricing on a geographic basis, which would in principle be prohibited by the geographic discrimination prohibition. In order to avoid disruption to the market, we temporarily exempted these offers from the geographic prohibition until 1 August 2021 while we consulted on whether to consent.

Having considered responses, in this statement we confirm our decisions to grant consent in relation to these three offers. This permits the existing geographic pricing to continue until the current offer periods end.
