End-to-end competition in the postal sector

02 December 2014

This document sets out Ofcom’s decision that we do not consider there are grounds to impose regulatory conditions on Whistl’s end-to-end letter competition. This is because we do not currently consider the evidence shows that end-to-end letter competition by Whistl presents a threat to Royal Mail’s ability to provide the universal postal service.

End-to-end letter competition is where letters are collected, processed and delivered directly to the recipient in direct competition with Royal Mail, without the need to use Royal Mail’s network.
