Ofcom Proposes new Wholesale Prices for Openreach

Ofcom proposed reduced fees that Openreach, BT's wholesale access division, can charge communications providers for access to some of its main wholesale telecoms services in areas where it retains significant market power. Specifically:



For a fully unbundled line to a property - where a communications provider takes over the line to provide broadband and telephone services.



The regulated wholesale price today is £89.10 per year. Under Ofcom's proposals this will decrease in real terms by between RPI-1.2% and RPI-4.2% every year.



For a shared unbundled line to a property – where a communications provider uses a proportion of the line only for the provision of broadband.



The regulated wholesale price today is £15.04 per year. Under Ofcom's proposals this will decrease in real terms by between RPI-11.6% and RPI-14.6% every year.



For wholesale line rental – used by communications providers to offer telephone services to consumers using lines rented from Openreach.



The regulated price today is £103.68 per year. Under Ofcom's proposals this will decrease in real terms by between RPI-3.1% and RPI-6.1% every year.http://media.ofcom.org.uk/
