Designing the Broadband Universal Service Obligation - Ofcom's call for inputs

Posted on 14/04/2016

In case you did not see this announcement last week, following the Government’s statement of intent to introduce a Universal Service Obligation.

Ofcom has published a call for inputs to help inform them on the design, looking at areas such as:

  • appropriate download speeds, and other technical measures, necessary to deliver a ‘decent’ broadband connection;
  • funding of the broadband USO;
  • when, and on what basis, the USO should be reviewed; and
  • designation of the universal service provider or providers.

The Ofcom document can be found here, and the consultation is open until 23 June.

If you have any thoughts you would like FCS to submit on your behalf, please send them to me.
