“CityFibre welcomes any remedies that accelerate the deployment of full fibre infrastructure by alternative providers. Reducing restrictions on duct and pole access (DPA) and making it more user friendly is a positive step to support this. We are undertaking extensive trials of DPA and believe it to be a valuable deployment option – but it is just part of the solution. To ensure the UK can secure a full fibre future, companies like CityFibre will need to continue to invest in our own physical network infrastructure at pace. In accordance with its strategic review last year, Ofcom must ensure that all its regulation must support the business case for private investment and infrastructure competition.”
– Mark Collins, Director of Strategy and Policy, CityFibre
