BT shuffles out 150 engineers to Openreach

BT asked Ofcom for permission to relocate about 150 engineers over to Openreach. Will this make the LLU process any less painful?

Find out in the next installment…

2006 was perhaps not the best year to try and get Openreach up and running, as the growth in demand in particular for LLU services, and the more traditional IPstream and Datastream services has put a strain on the limited number of engineering staff the company has. This has lead to longer than usual lead times for things like migrations, ceasing a service, fault finding or just getting connected in the first place.

To this end BT asked Ofcom for permission to allow 150 BT Global Services engineers who have the necessary training to work for Openreach in a move to address the current service challenges. A copy of the letter along with the Ofcom reply can be found at Ofcom has agreed to this arrangement for a short period which runs until the start of the New Year.
