The next few months will "prove critical for LLU deployment", according to the man responsible for ensuring that local loop unbundling works in the UK.

In his latest industry update, Telecoms Adjudicator Peter Black said that more exchanges are coming online, quality is improving and new automation processes that should speed up the delivery of LLU are about to kick-in.

And with more and more unbundled lines coming on stream, the total of LLU lines in the UK now stands at around 40,000.

The Office of the Telecoms Adjudicator (OTA) also used today's update to comment on the dispute between BT and Bulldog Communications concerning discriminatory fault repair times.

"Our first formal dispute from Bulldog Communications has been withdrawn after constructive dialogue between BT and Bulldog. A new Care Product proposal has been put to LLUOs (Local Loop Unbudling Operators) by BT, OTA is facilitating progress," he said. ®
