Oftel has said that Mercury's status needs some thinking about. Don Cruickshank, director general of Oftel, said today: "We must make sure that the regulatory rules applying to Mercury reflect both its current market power in the markets for international services and the increasing competitiveness of those markets. Our aim is avoid over-regulation of Mercury but to have sufficient safeguards in place to ensure that it cannot act anti-competitively both in markets in which it has market power and in adjacent markets where it can use that narket power."
A representative explained: "Mercury and BT, until the end of last year, were the only operators. Now there are over 50. We're giving them more freedom but they have to publish their tariffs."
