Summary of Responses Computer


Overview

In November 2004, Ofcom published a consultation document as part of Phase 2 of the Strategic Review of Telecommunications. The consultation document set out Ofcom's proposals for a future regulatory strategy. We have now received around 100 responses to this consultation from a wide range of industry stakeholders comprising operators, consumer groups and industry associations, regional interest groups and other interested parties.

Because of the number of responses and range of issues addressed, we have produced this summary to enable anyone interested in the Telecoms Review to access more easily the arguments put forward by others in the debate.

The Phase 2 summary of responses of the Telecoms Review are available to read here.

If you have any questions about the issues raised in this consultation, or need advice on the appropriate form of response, please contact Dougal Scott on 020 7783 4305. This consultation is the responsibility of Alex Blowers, Director of Policy Development at Ofcom, who is project director of the Telecoms Review.

Confidentiality

Ofcom believes it is important for everyone interested in an issue to see the views expressed by other consultation respondents. We would therefore usually publish all responses on our website as soon as practicable after the consultation period has ended.

All comments will be treated as non-confidential unless you identify that part or all of your response is confidential and should not be disclosed. Ideally, anything you prefer to be confidential should be placed in a separate annex, so that non-confidential parts may be published along with your identity.

The consultation response cover sheet includes a number of options for the confidentiality of your response, and we would be grateful if you would complete it.

Please also note that copyright in responses will be regarded as relinquished unless specifically retained.
