Ofcom has placed a number of regulatory and cost control obligations on BT in areas where the telco has significant market power to ensure a competitive deal for end-users.
The regulator's Review of the Wholesale Broadband Access Markets (PDF) explained that BT will be subject to pricing controls in 'Market 1' areas where it is the only provider of wholesale broadband services.
"This remedy, the details of which will be subject to separate consultation, is aimed at ensuring that BT does not set excessive prices which would ultimately be passed on to consumers," the report said.
'Market 2' areas, where BT is competing with two providers, or with three but has a 50 per cent or more market share, will involve regulatory obligations, but no cost controls.
These responsibilities will comprise general access and non-discrimination obligations as well as a requirement for charges to be cost oriented.
BT had not responded to a request for comment at the time of publication.
Hull-based provider KCOM has also been subjected to regulatory obligations owing to its significant market power in the area.
Ofcom said that it will not impose any pricing regulation or cost accounting obligations on KCOM after an assessment of its pricing and services found it comparable to other areas around the UK.
KCOM had also not responded to a request for comment at the time of publication.
