Ofcom Seeks Price Cuts from BT Wholesale in Rural Areas

Ofcom, the telecom regulator in the UK, proposed significant reductions in the prices that BT Wholesale can charge ISPs in parts of the country where it is the sole provider of wholesale broadband services -- mainly in rural areas. The proposed price reductions are between 10.75% and 14.75% below inflation.

Ofcom expects this will benefit about 12% of UK households or around 3 million homes and businesses.
