FCS responds to Ofcom’s Wholesale Fixed Telecoms Market Review
FCS has responded to Ofcom’s consultation on its Wholesale Fixed Telecoms review. FCS broadly agrees with the approach adopted by Ofcom for this review (in combining wholesale markets which it previously reviewed separately) as this enables a more holistic approach to a complex system of markets.
However, while FCS supports Ofcom’s stated objective of supporting the roll out of fibre to meet the needs of end customers, our overriding concern is to ensure that the regulatory environment effectively promotes competition, diversity of provision by a range of providers and ease of switching for all customers.
FCS has arranged a meeting with Ofcom to discuss the issues in its response in more detail.
