Thursday 20 April 2017 | 13:56 CET | News
Ofcom has opened to consultation its latest Strategic Review of Digital Communications aimed at supporting investment in ultrafast broadband networks, as published in December. The consultation concerns Openreach's duct and pole access product, known as physical infrastructure access (PIA) and builds on one held earlier. This document forms part of Ofcom's review of the Wholesale Local Access (WLA) market and explains how its proposals will help competition concerns arising from BT's significant market power.
