Ten years after its first strategic review of telecommunications, Ofcom, the UK communications sector regulator, has announced the terms of reference for a new “Strategic Review of Digital Communications”. In this edition of Hexagon, SPC Network considers what lessons can be taken from the last review and applied to the new one.

  • Lesson 1: Focus on a few key problems and design specific solutions… but don’t expect them to solve everything.
  • Lesson 2: Identify the location of any competition problem … which may have moved since 2005.
  • Lesson 3: Working with, rather than against, the SMP operator is likely to be more efficient.
