INCA Response to Openreach Consultation on Exchange Closure Trials

INCA has submitted a response on behalf of its members in relation to a recent Openreach consultation about planned exchange closures.

Openreach plans to close approximately 4500 of its 5000 exchanges by 2030, and this programme could have a substantial impact on AltNets if the closure programme is not handled carefully. Our response to the consultation sets out a series of recommendations to mitigate this potential impact, not least that a much broader and open consultation process be commenced asa matter of urgency, and that Ofcom should establish and oversee the framework for this consultation.
