Market A and B Exchanges


[link to this post]
 
So our exchange is to be changed from Market 1 to Market A.
According to blurb this involves exchanges with no more than 2 OPs providing at least 9.6% of capacity.
Will this mean the end of them and us when it comes to prices, as is also in blurb. Or, is it just that fibre is now on beta test here.

Just a change to how Ofcom group the exchanges, any pricing differentials are down to the ISP and their wholesaler. For BT Wholesale there are different rules for exchanges Market 1 i.e. now Market A exchanges. Most providers charge uniform price across the UK where they sell BT Wholesale services though. EE and PlusNet are exceptions.

Fibre pricing from Openreach is uniform across the whole UK

Have all the exchanges been reclassified now? Samknows still shows Market 1/2/3 in exchange searches.

But do it differently.

EE bases on old LLU network.
PN on market classification.
