Ofcom: Proposed Openreach FTTP pricing offer

Ofcom consults on proposed Openreach FTTP pricing offer

 

Ofcom has today published a consultation on a new fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) pricing offer that Openreach intends to introduce from 1 October 2021.

 

Under our wholesale fixed telecoms market review rules, Openreach must notify us of certain offers 90 days before they come into effect. This is so we can prevent Openreach from harming competition, by restricting any offers that would stifle new network build by its rivals. 

 

On 1 July, Openreach notified us of new long-term pricing arrangements for its FTTP services, known as the 'Equinox' offer, which will last for ten years.

 

Having assessed the offer, and taken account of stakeholders' initial views on it, our provisional view is that we should not take any action at this time.

 

Today's consultation closes on 6 September 2021, and we intend to publish our decision in September 2021.
