Ofcom Proposes New Wholesale Prices for Openreach

Ofcom, the telecoms regulator for the UK, published a new range of proposed prices that Openreach can charge communication providers for access to its main wholesale telecoms services. The proposed prices cover both full unbundling, where a communications provider takes over the line to provide broadband and telephone services; and shared unbundling, where a communications provider shares the line with BT for the provision of broadband only.




The following proposed ranges are for annual rental charges for the first year of 2009/10:

  • A fully unbundled line: £85.00 to £91.00 (from £81.69 today);


  • Shared unbundled line: £15.60 to £16.20 (from £15.60 today);


  • Residential wholesale line rental: £100.68 and £104.40 (from £100.68 today);


  • Business wholesale line rental: £106.00 and £110.00 (from £110 today); and


  • Other related charges adjusting in line with underlying cost increases.


Ofcom has also proposed charges for unbundled lines for 2010/11.http://www.ofcom.org.uk
