Wednesday 2 December 2015 | 09:30 CET | News
Ofcom CEO Sharon White has warned that the status quo between BT and subsidiary Openreach is unlikely to continue, BBC News reports. Ofcom is currently reviewing BT's provision of superfast broadband. White said that a structural separation of Openreach was one of four possible options being considered. The other options are maintaining the existing status quo, which was unlikely; more deregulation; and adapting the existing system to make it 'more fit for purpose'.
