      BT Openreach Confirm UK LLU and Line Rental Price Changes for 2016

      BT Openreach Confirm UK LLU and Line Rental Price Changes for 2016 - ISPreview UK
      BTOpenreach, which maintains and manages access to BT’s national UK telecoms network, has announced a series of line rental, local loop unbundling (LLU), electricity and engineering related price changes that will be introduced from 1st April 2016. Thankfully most of the adjustments are reductions.

      The tweaks will impact Internet and phone providers that buy their services directly from Openreach, which predominantly reflects the charge controls / regulation (Fixed Access Market Review) introduced by Ofcom. The prices are +vat based and don’t include any extras costs or services that ISPs may need to add on top before being sold as part of a consumer product.

      Broadly speaking most of the tweaks reflect small to modest sized reductions. For example, BT’s WLR Basic Line Rental service will go from costing 89.50 per annum to 86.72 (-3.1%), although the cost of a fully unbundled (MPF) line will remain largely unchanged at 87.65 per annum. A full list of the changes can be found online, although it will only make sense to those familiar with the jargon.
      Comment: For those who may be unfamiliar, any LLU price changes will directly affect Sky's pricing since Sky is an LLU provider.

      If you look at the full list you will see LLU (MPF) providers rent is going up. Not by much, 0.2%, but no chance of a reduction. The only ones who may be effected by the reductions are BT resellers such as Plunet.
