Is The Broadband Market As Competitive As It Should Be?

On the day that OFCOM announce that they have removed regulation from around 70% of the UK broadband market many people are starting to ask if competition is really as tough as it should be. Is the market ready to be let loose?

While the likes of BT, which still dominates a massive percentage of the UK broadband market, and local companies such as KCOM, which dominates the Hull area, will still be under observation and strict regulations, the majority of providers will be free of regulatory pressure. OFCOM believes that the sector in the majority of the UK is now competitive enough to ensure that consumers are getting the best deals around. However, there are many who disagree....

Over the last few months we have seen a number of companies across the whole sector coming under fire for their advertising techniques and examples of download speeds. Many of these speeds were found to be inaccessible by the vast majority of customers due in the main to the wire being used and their distance from the actual exchange. Is this really a market ready to be opened up?

Many in the sector believe that the broadband market should remain under full regulatory control for some time yet, but OFCOM seem to disagree.
