BT in protest at price cuts
Tuesday 07 February 2012
BT has said it disagrees with price cuts ordered by the telecoms regulator yesterday. Ofcom said BT should cut the price it charges rivals to use a broadband line by about 4.5 per cent to increase competition.
The watchdog said the price of a fully unbundled line to a property, where a communications provider takes over the line to provide broadband and telephone services, would drop to £87.41 from £91.50. A line used just for broadband would fall from £14.70 to £11.90. But BT said it had to be able to earn a fair rate of return to roll out high-speed networks across the UK. Consumers will see little effect from the price cuts.
