BT has voluntarily given Ofcom and industry a set of Commitments. Our Commitments will provide strategic independence for Openreach, making it a wholly-owned subsidiary of BT operating within the Group Strategic framework, with its own staff, management, purpose and strategy.
BT believes the new arrangements will sufficiently address Ofcom’s competition concerns and increase opportunities for other Communication Providers to co-invest with Openreach and deliver better broadband services for the UK and strengthen the UK digital economy.
BT has published a number of documents to help both Ofcom and Communication Providers understand how we do business. These include Guidance Notes given to the business to make it clear how key processes work.
