Published 21/01/2011

RURAL areas of the UK could be set for cheaper broadband following new rules reducing the amount BT can charge for its wholesale service. Communications regulator Ofcom said it had proposed cutting the prices BT can charge in parts of the country where it is the sole provider of wholesale broadband services, which is mainly in rural areas. The proposed price cuts are between 1.75% and 14.75% below inflation.
