Ofcom Strategic Review of Digital Communications

Posted by malcolm on Thursday, March 12th, 2015 at 14:28

Ofcom has announced a major new review, the Strategic Review of Digital Communications. This will open the door for the development of new policy on the regulation of infrastructure and the promotion of competition after the General Election: content issues are proposed to be out of scope.

Some of the key topics to be addressed are promoting investment, analysing the “enduring bottlenecks” that limit competition and how they are regulated, and considering further deregulation. Other issues may include: ensuring the continued resilience of UK telecoms infrastructure; supporting minimum service levels to consumers; the role of policy in addressing take-up issues and the digital divide.

The review is planned to be conducted in two phases. Phase 1 will be a consultation phase, gathering evidence from stakeholders and engaging discussion, and will culminate in a public Discussion Document sometime in Summer 2015. Following public responses, as Phase 2 Ofcom will set out its analysis and conclusions by the end of 2015.
