  3. 3. 3 Regulated access to NGA does not provide the same opportunities as LLU • Ofcom should seek to promote infrastructure investment by CPs to deliver increased competition in superfast broadband – likely to deliver similar benefits as observed with LLU • GEA provides few opportunities to invest or innovate – it is a white label active product • Other access products (SLU & PIA) are not fit for purpose – so don’t offer opportunity to replicate the dynamic success of LLU
  4. 4. 4 Sky Believe in Better Always innovating, always looking to deliver an even better customer experience Ultra-Fast Broadband in York • A joint venture with TalkTalk and CityFibre • Working with TalkTalk (between us we have more BB customers than anyone else), but we will compete at retail with competing customer propositions • Technical and commercial trial - to better understand the potential of the technology, economics and customer response • State of the art city-wide FTTP network • Unencumbered by legacy infrastructure enabled a focus on what is right for customers • Delivering 1 Gigabit, initially to 20,000 homes and businesses in York
  5. 5. 5 Other fibre initiatives Improving the customer experience on existing commercial FTTC GEA 1. The launch of a new dual ADSL/VDSL router with accompanying wireless boosters 2. Self-install (removing the requirement for home visit by an engineer) 3. Support the call for access to the NTE5 socket – allowing for a holistic in-home customer experience Investigating alternative fibre options (On-going process of assessing opportunities to building out our network to better serve customers) 4. Harrow trial of FTTP with TalkTalk in 2011 5. Unbundled FTTC – via a Statement of Requirements (SoR) which is in protracted discussions with Openreach 6. Small scale technical trials including: a) MDUs – fibre to the basement and various in-building distribution options b) SLU – various cabinet backhaul options (including PIA) and operational processes c) FTTH using poles – new network build and operational processes 7. Accept that any approach will need to be flexible, local and no one size fits all
  6. 6. 6 BDUK SEP funding Public Accounts Committee recommendation “The department should not spend any of the further £250m of public money until it has developed approaches to secure proper competition and value for money for improving superfast broadband after 2015,” Sky would support: - The opportunity to offer our BB&T services over the networks of alternate fibre networks. - A standardised wholesale platform for provision and assurance of access provided by alternate fibre networks.
