In February 2016, Ofcom published its initial conclusions from its Strategic Review of Digital Communications. That document set out a range of actions to make communications work for everyone.
One of those actions was to increase Openreach’s independence from BT so it is more responsive to all of its customers. Ofcom is now consulting on the details of how this should be achieved, see http://stakeholders.ofcom.org.uk/consultations/strengthening-openreachs-independence/
BCS intends to submit a response to Ofcom. If you wish to contribute please comment by 26th September 2016.
