BT's Openreach to build full-fibre internet 'like fury' after Ofcom move

Quote:
Snippet ... BBT has said it will "build like fury" to roll out full-fibre internet connections after new rules announced by the UK's telecoms regulator.

Ofcom has decided not to impose price caps on full-fibre connections provided by the firm's Openreach subsidiary.

This gives the company the certainty it had been looking for ahead of a planned 12bn investment.

However, the decision lays Ofcom open to criticism that is has given a near-monopoly operator a generous deal.

That could mean more expensive internet connections for the public than might have been the case.

Ofcom also froze the price curbs it levels on what Openreach charges internet service providers for its slower copper-based connections.

I guess it gives them an incentive to do the build so that is a good thing and I guess once it is built there is not stopping them capping it again in the future

Does this mean BT Group are being treated any different to other FTTP providers?
