OFCOM PLANS FOR HIGHER RURAL BROADBAND COSTS
EDM #2380
Tabled 13 May 2019
2017-19 Session
That this House opposes Ofcom proposals allowing BT to raise upfront costs on rural consumers accessing the Openreach network as a subsidy for the roll out of high-speed fibre broadband; calls on the Department for Culture, Media and Sport to rule out penalising rural broadband consumers with higher network access costs in rural areas; and supports parity of rural and urban broadband costs for consumers throughout the transition towards high-speed fibre broadband.
