Unbundled Local Loop?

Response to OFTA’s Review of the Regulation Policy for Type ll Interconnection, Analysis and Preliminary Conclusions: 16 December 2003.

Unbundled Local Loop?

The argument of this paper is simple and straightforward. ULL has fulfilled its initial purpose of bringing competition and therefore choice to Hong Kong consumers. In fact, the policy has been a considerable success. The danger now is that the policy will lose its initial purpose and instead be driven by what are really the commercial strategies of a subset of FTNS operators. This is market distorting and requires the policy to be rethought.
