Ofcom withdraws notice to KCom on 999 access

Monday 6 February 2017 | 09:34 CET | News
UK telecoms regulator Ofcom has withdrawn a notice sent to KCom last October over a suspected failure to provide access to emergency services numbers. Ofcom said the notification did not accurately reflect changes to its legal enforcement powers which came into effect in May 2011. As a result, it decided to withdraw the original notification to KCom. KCom provided its own representations on the matter, which are under consideration by Ofcom. If any violations are found, the regulator will issue a new notification to KCom in due course.
