TalkTalk responds to Ofcom's announcement: Encouraging investment in full-fibre networks and promoting competition.

TalkTalk Chief Executive Officer Dido Harding said:

“We welcome moves to cut prices and improve Openreach's service, but consumers will be frustrated that they have to wait a year before they benefit. Ofcom’s proposal to only regulate some products also risks entrenching a speed divide, with customers having to make a false choice between fair prices or higher speeds. Ensuring consumers enjoy low prices on all superfast products is the best way to maximise take-up and encourage investment in the pure fibre infrastructure of the future."
