Response to Ofcom’s Equinox 2 consultation extension
In response to Ofcom's statement here this morning, an Openreach spokesperson said: “Whilst we continue to share Ofcom’s initial view that our offer isn’t anti-competitive, it’s important the regulator has time to consider all the feedback it has received fully and fairly, so our discounted Full Fibre prices won't come into effect on 1st April. That said, we don't think customers should be forced to pay higher prices because of this delay so, if Ofcom's initial assessment is confirmed in May, we'll ensure our customers benefit from Equinox 2 pricing from 1 April.
“Our offer is a response to customers, who want lower prices and long-term certainty to help them switch to faster, more reliable broadband connections. It also supports our continued multi-billion pound investment to upgrade the UK’s broadband infrastructure.”
