Update on COVID-19 – 7 April 2020

Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19 and restrictions of movement in place, we have converted all our industry face-to-face meetings to calls and/or online meetings until the end of June. We will review this position on a rolling monthly basis and advise of any continuation of this approach or plans to resume to normal working as soon as possible. The OTA2 will also continue to review the structure of these meetings with a view to making them as efficient and effective as possible..

Welcome to the website of the OTA2

The OTA2 was established as a follow-on to the original OTA Scheme. We are independent of the regulator and of industry. We will facilitate the swift implementation of processes where necessary to enable a wider range of Communications Providers and End Users to benefit from clear and focussed improvements, in particular where multi-lateral engagement is necessary. The OTA2 will also be able to bring all parties together to find prompt mediated resolution of working-level implementation issues.

The OTA2 will primarily deal with major or strategic issues affecting the rollout and performance of Openreach products and services. Additionally, Ofcom will often task us to execute projects and tasks as part of either market reviews or specific consumer requirements across industry.
