|Re The OFCOM findings and large fine for BT.
It would appear to me that TalkTalk would now have very strong grounds to start civil/corporate litigation against BT for loss of income, unfair market practices and very significant financial compensation.
Share price has been perking up since return of Sir Charles in an Executive capacity combined with BT getting a major slap on the wrists and the separation of Openreach.
Good also to see Talktalk significantly hotting its marketing campaigns up again.
After a couple of years in the wilderness, it seems that a rapid rehabilitation for TalkTalk is underway as the operating environment turns positively in its favour.
ALL IMO. DYOR.
|Up she goes ✔ 👀✔|
|There's your £1.90 Borg!|
|It's certainly trying hard this morning...|
|Showing signs of recovery!! Wonder if it can reach the 1:90s this week|
|As far as I'm aware, only a global (fine) figure has been disclosed.
Maybe trying to work out Talk's slice of the action.
Meanwhile the shareprice is up and my losses are now sub £4k|
|I'll have my people call their people NY Boy ;-)|
|Already sent an e-mail, which will mostly likely be ignored!|
|Ring their people up and tell them!|
|As this is material impact, TalkTalk ought to issue an RNS on this|
|BT slapped with record £42m fine over delays in installing lines
27 March 2017 | By LLB Reporter
Ofcom hands down its largest ever fine
Telecoms operator Ofcom has slapped BT with a record £42m fine, the largest it has ever handed down, for delays in installing lines.
BT has set aside £300m to repay providers for the delays.
Openreach has “apologised wholeheartedly”; for the mistakes.
Gaucho Rasmussen, Ofcom’s investigations director, said: “These high-speed lines are a vital part of this country’s digital backbone.
“We found BT broke our rules by failing to pay other telecoms companies proper compensation when these services were not provided on time.
“The size of our fine reflects how important these rules are to protect competition and, ultimately, consumers and businesses.”
Dan Howdle, consumer telecoms analyst at Ofcom-accredited broadband advice site Cable.co.uk, says: “Today’s ruling offers insight into just some of the factors contributing to Ofcom’s decision to split BT and Openreach into two separate entities. Clearly, being the sole owner of shared infrastructure has given rise to precisely the sort of conflict of interest of which BT has long been accused.
“Customers must never be allowed to become collateral damage in the battle to gain the upper hand in the market. Fines such as this, painful though they are for those on whom they are levied, are vital in maintaining a fair, competitive marketplace in which business can thrive.”|
|the result of the ofcom ruling against BT today means that BT will have to pay £300million compensation to third party telecoms providers...which of course includes Talt talk. that should help cover the dividend... thanks BT|
|Is TALK still going to pay a divi this year?|
|Yes within the next month hopefully..|
|Anyone think this will get back to £2|
|One heck of an uncrossing trade this afternoon.|
|Maybe they like the exceptional dividend yield at these prices, I do.|

|Maybe people are realising there's no reason it should be sitting on about a quarter of its real value?|
|Enjoying the ride today. Anybody have a reason for it?|
|Disclosed short positions.
Eminence continues to reduce its short but a new shorter, Wellington, has appeared and Marshall Wace has popped back up, having previously gone below the threshold to 0.47% on 1st March. So the current list is:
0.68% Eminence Capital (as of 14th March)
0.63% Wellington Management Company (as of 9th March)
0.56% Odey Asset Management (as of 16th November)
0.50% Marshall Wace (as of 6th March)|
|I have heard good things about Vodafone fibre. Might be worth a look?|
|Not much joy from tt retentions, 30quid pm for fibre and all calls and a free sim. But i have another 2 months of my contract, so will have another bash then. The sky and bt deals are 1 year things, and i can't be bothered with the hassle of switching every year. tt offers a fixed price for 2 years (which would be ok if it were 1/3rd lower). bt has a new deal on mse today, but relies on a big cashback being claimed, and in a year you're back to square one again.|
|Try BT Pierre,the best telecoms provider.|
|I am in same boat P.O..Let me know if you find any good offers,but seems to be a scarcity at the mo.|
