Ofcom deregulating competitive exchanges

Posted by malcolm on Wednesday, November 21st, 2007 at 14:37

Ofcom has published its view that there is no Significant Market Power (SMP) for wholesale broadband services at large exchanges (i.e.  those serving at least 10,000 premises) where four or more major operators are present. Ofcom therefore intends to remove SMP-based regulation from BT in 1070 such exchanges. The affected exchanges reach 64.4% of UK premises; in 4531 exchanges BT or Kingston are still assessed to still have SMP status.

With over 770 members connecting from over 76 different countries worldwide, LINX members have access to direct routes from a large number of diverse international peering partners.
