Industry Coalition Outlines 10 Point Plan for Openreach
There has been recent news surrounding a group of companies, including Sky and Vodafone, that have written to Ofcom proposing ways in which Openreach – BT’s fixed line wholesale division – can be improved.
Sky, Vodafone and all the other members of the ‘industry coalition’ together represent the interests of the majority of consumers and businesses that rely on Openreach, as well as companies which deliver communications solutions to hundreds and thousands of organisations both big and small.
As one of those companies which deliver communications solutions to thousands of businesses, Focus Group Director, Chris Goodman, comments:
“As long as Openreach falls under the control of the BT Group I fear we will not see meaningful change. Openreach have fast become perceived as an entity that has no obligation to deliver a particular level of service to all its customers. If end users suffer at the hands of Openreach there seems to be barely any liability for it…how many businesses can operate in this way despite being in a regulated industry? Hopefully Ofcom will listen to both the consumers it is mandated to protect and the industries’ suppliers who are both regularly short-changed by Openreach in its current form.”
