Wholesale Local Access Market Review: initial proposals to develop an effective PIA remedy - National consultation
Launch date:06 December 2016
Modified at:26 January 2017
The consultation concerns Openreach’s duct and pole access product, known as Physical Infrastructure Access (PIA). It builds on Openreach’s process improvement trials for PIA, conducted with the Office of the Telecommunications Adjudicator and five other telecoms providers, as well as our positive engagement with stakeholders since the DCR was published. It links the commitments made in the DCR to specific actions, setting out our initial views on what Openreach’s PIA product could be used for, how it should work in terms of processes, and how charges could be set. We explain how each of these areas in combination will help address concerns regarding barriers to investing in ultrafast broadband networks at scale.
