Default OFCOM announces Strategic Review of UK telecommunications sector


From
http://www.ofcom.org.uk/media_office...e_12-12-03.htm

"Ofcom today set out the terms and timing of its forthcoming Strategic
Review of the UK telecommunications sector. The Review, which will begin in
January 2004 and will run to the end of the year, will be the first
comprehensive assessment of the sector for 13 years.

The Review will explo

- The importance of telecommunications to the UK economy, and the extent to
which the sector benefits from competition, including the fixed, mobile,
narrowband and broadband markets.

- The extent to which competition and/or regulation has delivered the goals
of lower prices, higher quality of service and wider choice for service
providers and consumers.

- UK consumers' perspectives on those markets, including the value they
place on different products and services. The Review will examine this in
the context of the experience of consumers in other countries. It will also
seek comparisons with the range of products and services offered to UK
consumers by companies in sectors other than telecommunications.

- Investment and innovation trends in the industry and the significance of
emerging technologies as a driver of new opportunities for service providers
and consumers.

- The scope for effective competition at all levels in the
telecommunications markets and the extent to which that competition is
likely to be sustainable in the foreseeable future."

Hmmm… I think it mat be interesting to see what OfCom's opinions are
on 0870 numbers. They can be, and most often are, after all, more
expensive than dialling a national geographic number.

OFTEL are already doing a consultation related to 0870 (and 0845/0871/0844)
numbers.

See http://www.oftel.gov.uk/publications...condoc0903.pdf -
consultation finishes at the end of the month.

OFCOM will be publishing the results etc..

Sunil
