Ofcom gets heavy with BT

19 June 2014

Bitterwallet - BT users to receive cash demands for file-sharing Ofcom wants to force BT to provide its broadband network to its rival operators.

The regulator has proposed forcing BT Group PLC to provide its broadband to high-speed broadband operators at prices that allow them to compete with BT.

Ofcom said: "BT has to maintain a sufficient margin between its wholesale and retail superfast broadband charges to allow other operators profitably to match its prices."

Ofcom has said that the new rules would consider the costs of BT's sports channels, which is free to its superfast customers.

It  is expected to publish a final statement on its decisions on BT's superfast broadband margin later in the year, so as we know any more, we'll tell you where and when and you can camp outside it.

The regulator also announced Warren G-ly, that it has provisionally decided that there are no grounds for action following BT's rival TalkTalk Telecom Group PLC's complaint that BT failed to maintain a sufficient margin between its wholesale and superfast-broadband retail prices.

So there you have it.

    Is Warren G-Ly meant to be worryingly?
