Update on Covid-19 – 7 September 2021

We have now put plans into place to reintroduce some element of face to face meetings where justified. Recognising the benefits of both face to face and online meetings we are proposing to blend the two approaches. For the commercial groups we have proposed to meet face to face once a quarter followed by online meetings the next 2 months. Depending upon the success of this method we can review our long-term strategy.

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.
