In a response to Ofcom’s Wholesale Fixed Telecoms Market Review, Greg Mesch, Chief Executive Officer at CityFibre said: “We believe the direction of travel Ofcom is taking to ensure national coverage and to help establish the at-scale competitors essential to maintaining a healthy infrastructure market for the long term is right, but we would like to see it move further and faster.

“While we are encouraged by Ofcom’s recognition of the risks of volume discounts and geographic pricing to damage competition before it can scale, we would like it to be even more proactive in addressing these issues. The Government’s 2025 target for national coverage is ambitious and while possible, it is only achievable with bold and affirmative action.

“We look forward to working with the new CEO of Ofcom and the freshly formed Government to present our ideas for a more comprehensive framework that will help more of the UK access full fibre connectivity faster.”
