BT is in talks about selling off part of its stake in its broadband infrastructure company Openreach.
Plans by the opposition Labour Party to nationalise the provision of broadband by 2030 has caused turmoil in the telecoms sector.
Openreach has published a list of 36 new locations where it intends to build Fibre To The Premises (FTTP) over the next 12 months.
BT Openreach has launched a consultation on the future upgrade of consumers and businesses to so-called ‘full-fibre’ broadband.
Ofcom has given details of how Openreach will be “measured and monitored” when the network division is separated from BT.
Openreach is to be a legally separate company within BT following an agreement between the telco and regulator Ofcom.
Ofcom has set out proposals that it says will help ultrafast ‘full-fibre’ broadband services be delivered over the infrastructure owned by BT.
Ofcom has announced plans for a major reform of Openreach, the network division of BT, which maintains the infrastructure for Sky, TalkTalk, Vodafone and BT itself.
A coalition of challenger telcos and their representatives have released their own plan for the future of Openreach.
