In February, Gigaclear applied to Ofcom for Code Powers, and after some discussion, Ofcom published a consultation on Thursday the 10th March 2011. The consultation allows comment on applying the electronic communications code to Gigaclear limited under section 106(3) of the Communications Act 2003. If approved, this will give the company powers to carry out street works in relation to roll out of fibre-based telecoms networks in the UK.
