Statement published 24 May 2023; updated 29 June 2023

In Ofcom's Wholesale Fixed Telecoms Market Review statement, we set out a framework to promote investment and competition in gigabit-capable networks. In doing so, we recognised a concern that Openreach could set commercial terms that undermine new network build.

On 14 December 2022, Openreach notified us of a new pricing offer for its full-fibre services (Equinox 2). This offer gives lower prices to retail providers – such as BT, Sky, TalkTalk and Vodafone – if they agree to use mainly Openreach’s full-fibre products for new orders instead of its legacy copper products.

In our consultation, we assessed the Equinox 2 offer and set our provisional view that we should not take any action at this time to prevent the new terms from being introduced. Having carefully assessed the range of evidence available to us – including responses to our consultation – we have decided not to prevent Equinox 2 from being introduced.
