  • UK Broadband and Mobile Broadband news
    broadband prices after claims that they were charging rivals too much for use of their network In May last year TalkTalk complained to Ofcom that BT were abusing their dominant position when setting prices for wholesale fibre optic broadband and now a report in the Financial Times claims that the communications regulator will launch a consultation into the price s of BT s wholesale fibre optic pricing which is to be done before the end of May Redburn Partners who are an equities partner told the Financial Times that We think Ofcom s margin squeeze test could reduce BT wholesale fibre prices by at least 2 per month initially with ongoing monitoring potentially leading to further cuts BT are naturally not going to be pleased with Ofcom doing their investigation especially if it does result in Ofcom agreeing with TalkTalk s complaints and making BT Openreach reduce the wholesale prices if charges competitors for access to its fibre network Filed under News Tags BT Openreach Fibre optic wholesale prices Ofcom Author Mark 8 17 am Comments 0 April 2 2014 BT in monopoly position over rural broadband contracts BT have been left in a monopoly position over the rollout of rural broadband across the country that has been part funded by 1 2 billion of public funds according to a report by the Public Accounts Committee PAC The Broadband Delivery UK BDUK scheme was set up by the government to help fund the rollout of fibre optic broadband to rural areas where it was not financially viable for BT Virgin Media or other providers to roll out to with just their own money The 1 2 billion BDUK pot of money to help with the roll out to these rural areas has in effect just been sent in the direction of BT as they are the only provider to have won any contracts The report by PAC initially raised concerns over the way the contracts were being awarded back in 2013 at this point 26 contracts for BDUK schemes had been awarded to BT since then the other 18 contracts that have been put out to tender have also gone in the direction of BT too Initially there were nine suppliers who were looking to bid for the BDUK funds but most of these dropped out and left the only real remaining one as Fujitsu however they themselves had pretty much given up too which left BT to clear up all the contracts Another issue is the secrecy surrounding the contracts BT stipulated that there was non discloser agreements in place so councils could not talk to each other to see if they were receiving a good deal or not this then makes it likely that more tax payers money will have gone to BT than perhaps needed to if there had been more openness surrounding existing contracts in place The other issue raised by PAC was that the broadband maps lacked detail which made it hard for other organisations to see where exactly BT would be rolling their fibre network out to and this hindered other schemes coming in to potentially fill in the gaps or offer faster speeds They have said that the government needs to work with local organisations to make these broadband maps able to be searched down to post codes to help make it clearer where exactly will and won t be covered Filed

the complaints chart for broadband services in a report compiled by Ofcom and it will have been a double blow for them as their big rivals Virgin Media received the fewest complaints Ofcom are the communications regulator and they report down all the complaints that they receive for broadband telephone mobile phones and pay TV It was the first time that BT has been the most complained about broadband provider as a proportion of their customer base and it was the twelfth quarterly report produced by Ofcom BT received an average of 0 32 complaints per 1 000 or 32 complaints per 100 000 customers during Q4 2013 followed by EE with 0 29 and then TalkTalk with 0 21 The industry average was 0 17 and there was only Sky 0 08 and Virgin Media 0 07 who were below the industry average BT s complains in general related to service faults and the way that complaints were handled The positive side to this is that this figure is down from Q3 2013 when they received 0 41 complaints per 1000 Previous to Q4 2013 it was EE who had topped the charts for the previous 5 quarters with 0 45 per 1 000 in Q3 2013 and so again the positive side to this is that this meant that they had improved by reducing their complaints down to 0 29 per 1 000 in the 3 months that followed What should be noted is that only the big broadband providers who have a market share of 4 or above and receive more than 30 complaints a month are included so just because some of the smaller ISPs are not included in the report does not necessarily mean they don t get complained about very much Virgin Media will have been pleased to continue their usual good record of very few complaints even more so they will be enjoying the fact that BT Broadband their big rival in the fibre broadband sector were the most complained about how long before we see this as another marketing stick being used by Virgin to beat BT with Filed under News Tags BT Broadband complaints BT most complained about broadband provider
