We have been invited by Ofcom to give early input into its thinking for the Wholesale Local Access (WLA) Market Review 2017-2020. Ofcom is going ahead with its planned programme of market reviews in parallel to anything that may arise from the Digital Comms Review.
WLA refers to the fixed connection from the local exchange/access node to the end user which is used for narrowband telephony, broadband (including superfast), ISDN2 and ISDN30. In the last review Ofcom defined the market as the supply of loop-based, cable-based and fibre-based wholesale local access at a fixed location. BT and KCOM were deemed to have SMP in their respective areas.
If you have any thoughts on how the market is working and where improvements could (or should) be made, please let me know by Friday 6 November.
I am gathering examples of DTF to UK PRS – usually numbers starting 091 – to provide to Ofcom and PhonepayPlus, who have at last agreed to consider taking some action.
If you have recent examples where you and your customer are happy to share details with the regulators, please let me know and I will put you in touch with the relevant people.
