This statement sets out the conclusions of our review of the retail and wholesale ISDN30 markets following on from the consultation published on 4 May 2010 ( Review of retail and wholesale ISDN30 markets referred to hereafter as the May 2010 consultation ). The May 2010 consultation proposed that retail ISDN30 services were in a discrete product market and that wholesale ISDN30 services were also in a discrete product market.
We further proposed that, in these discrete markets, BT did not have significant market power (SMP) in the retail market in the UK excluding the Hull area whereas KCOM had SMP in the retail market in the Hull area.
At the wholesale level, we proposed that Openreach had SMP in the wholesale market in the UK excluding the Hull area and KCOM had SMP in the wholesale market in the Hull area. We proposed regulatory remedies which we considered were necessary to address the competition concerns that we had found.
This statement now concludes the market review. We discuss respondents views throughout this statement and we have considered all submissions carefully in reaching our conclusions.
