On 28 February 2017, we consulted on our review of the retail market for standalone landline telephone services, that is the sale of telephone services to those people who buy such services in a standalone contract and not as part of a bundle with other services such as broadband or pay-TV. This affects around 2.9 million households in the UK. We provisionally concluded that BT holds significant market power in this market and we set out our proposals to address this, including a retail price control and consumer engagement remedies.
This consultation document sets out our further proposals for the financial reporting requirements that BT will need to follow in relation to these retail standalone landline telephone services.
We will take all responses to this consultation into account before reaching our final conclusions which we plan to publish in a statement at the turn of the year.
