What we stand for

FCS MOBILE TELEPHONY POSITION

  • To deliver genuine competition, future-proof converged product offerings and encourage innovation and fresh entrants, the existing principles of Equivalence of Inputs must be extended from the fixed telephony space into the mobile space. 
  • Open and transparent wholesale access to network capacity must be made available to allow CPs of all sizes to compete on a level playing field and allow sustainable and effective competition in service provision.
  • Mobile networks' infrastructure and resale operations should be fully structurally separated from one another. 
  • All mobile telephony contracts should be renewed on a Gaining-Provider-Led basis, as is common with all other consumer contracts.  
  • FCS also supports an early move to National Roaming (as is already the case with 999 calls) to encourage genuine competition between networks in terms of service offering, rather than local signal availability.
