Ofcom Says BT Must Open The Fibre Network [bbc.co.uk]
Ofcom has required BT to allow competitors control of its fibre cables in a move designed to promote the take-up of superfast broadband services.

The regulator has also told BT that it must give rival ISPs access to its underground ducts and telegraph poles to build their own fibre networks.

BT, the UK's largest ISP, will be able to set its own prices for access.

The regulator said its decision would support the government's ambitions to roll out superfast broadband.
