LLU Starting to Flatten says OTA

Peter Black, Executive Chairman of the Office of the Telecommunications Adjudicator has reported that there are now 3.363 million unbundled LLU lines in the UK.

“Almost all current market forecasts are showing a flattening of the trend for new lines and therefore more churn is expected as customers come to the end of minimum term contracts with existing suppliers and look around for better deals.

Our push for continued improvement in reaching the agreed quality targets and the bedding down of good migrations processes has been in anticipation of this trend and will become even more important to CPs and End–Users alike.

In his October report Black also reported that there are 5.05 million WLR lines and 5.78 million telephone numbers using CPS.
