Supplementary guidance on assessment of the VULA margin

  • Start: 11 June 2015
  • Status: Statement published
  • End: 13 July 2015

This is a statement on supplementary guidance on the minimum margin that British Telecommunications plc ('BT') must maintain between its wholesale and retail superfast broadband prices.

On 19 March 2015, we published a statement setting out detailed requirements on the minimum margin and guidance on how we would assess compliance with those obligations. That guidance anticipates that there might be material changes in circumstances which would warrant a departure from that guidance.

In June 2015, BT announced changes to its BT Sport retail proposition. These changes are linked to BT beginning to broadcast UEFA football from August 2015. We consider that these changes constitute a material change of circumstances and so, having consulted on our approach, we now set out supplementary guidance regarding how we would undertake our assessment of the minimum margin during the launch period of this new proposition.
