BT Openreach Cuts Prices for Pole and Duct Access

BT's Openreach division significantly cut prices for pole and duct access as well as breaking down many of those products into their component parts. Other carriers are encouraged to use such infrastructure to deliver fibre broadband to rural areas.

Openreach said its new prices are significantly lower – in some cases more than 60 per cent lower - than the draft ones issued in January when there was a limited understanding of the costs and challenges incurred with providing such access. They are up to 38 per cent below the European average for rural areas – according to independent research firm Ovum – and will come into force in November.
