Wholesale Local Access Market Review - Consultation on possible approaches to fibre cost modelling

  • Start: 09 May 2016
  • Status: Closed
  • End: 07 June 2016

This document is a consultation in relation to Ofcom’s current Wholesale Local  Access (WLA) Market Review, which examines the market for the provision of access  connections used to provide telephone and broadband internet services  (including superfast broadband) to residential and business consumers.

We intend to consult on our proposals for future regulation  of these services later this year. In order to progress the market review and  be able to consult fully on all options for future remedies, if a provider is  found to have Significant Market Power (SMP), we want to understand better the  wholesale costs of providing fibre access services.

This consultation document sets out the general approach we  intend to take to cost modelling in order to estimate the costs of fibre based  access services. These estimates will be used to inform the WLA Market Review.
