FISP Also welcomes Ofcom’s Strategic Review of Digital Communications

By | March 13, 2015

Ofcom’s intent to conduct a strategic review of digital communications has attracted much media coverage and commentary from stakeholders in the networking industry.  The Terms of Reference published yesterday suggest that any outcome will not be known until late 2015 or early in 2016.

In our initial response to the Ofcom publication we observe that regulatory frameworks should be set in the context of clear long-term national (or sub-national) imperatives – but those imperatives may not become apparent until any incoming government articulates emergent departmental priorities for economic and social development.

In welcoming the Strategic Review, FISP also points out the potential contention between a functional market regulator and policy developed to further the national interest.
