Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Dutch telco Novaxess is refusing to get het up about local loop unbundling (LLU) in Britain despite being committed to offering ADSL services from the beginning of next year.

Indeed, the Amsterdam-based company is remarkably mellow and laid back, preferring to take a more conciliatory tone towards solving the issues surrounding this complex issue.

Marc Destrée, CEO Novaxess told The Register that while BT had to face up to its responsibilities and obligations, it was pointless taking legal action against the incumbent.

He said that legal action was "extreme" and that it was his ambition to build a "bilateral commercial relationship with BT".

That said, he applauded Europe's bid to introduce legislation that would create a legal framework underpinning LLU. He added that it had taken the US six years to get its processes in place for LLU - and now Europe's tried to do it in a couple of months.

Novaxess is planning to launch its broadband service in Britain from January 2001 concentrating on the SME market.

It is currently bidding for space in Leeds, Birmingham and Manchester since these cities have large concentrations of small and medium-sized businesses, although it is also eyeing London and the Thames Valley.

It has recently opened a British office in Leeds. ®
