Delivering super-fast broadband in the UK - Interactive Executive Summary

1.14

On promoting competition, we do not think that the move to new, next generation access networks means we need to fundamentally change our current regulatory approach. We continue to believe that competition at the deepest level that is effective and sustainable, supported by equivalence of access, is the right approach. What might change is what this means in practice. How to deliver on this objective in the future is one of the key areas for decision in setting the regulatory regime.

Ofcom's "current regulatory approach" has so far failed to provide any compeition in the KC Telephone area. If broadband customers in the KC area are get the same benefits as people in the rest of the country then these regulations will have to change or KC will have to become part of a national system (eg. by being taken over by BT or nationalised and then sold off)
