Ofcom proposes new broadband competition rulesOfcom proposes new broadband competition rules

Communications regulator Ofcom has proposed a raft of new rules designed to boost superfast broadband competition by making it easier for consumers to switch and reducing contract lengths.

Currently out for consultation the plans could see the wholesale cost of switching from one superfast broadband provider to another fall by up to 80 per cent and the minimum length of contract shrink from a year to one month.

Separate targets for installation and repair time for consumers will also be sought via the performance of BT’s network access division, Openreach.

The consultation will close on 25 September with review conclusions being published in spring 2014.
