Non-exclusive local delivery licence awarded to BT

The ITC have awarded a non-exclusive local delivery service licence to British Telecommunications (BT), following their application last year.
The licence permits the provision of television and related services over telephone networks and/or broadband cable, allowing BT to offer a full range of multi-channel television and related services in all parts of the United Kingdom. BT are initially proposing to roll out services on a trial basis to approximately 3,000 homes.
A nominal cash bid of £1 has been made for the licence, in addition to administrative licence fees, and the ITC have set the percentage of qualifying revenue to be paid for all non-exclusive licences at zero.
The invitation to apply for non-exclusive local delivery licences was issued on July 4 2000. Local delivery licences enable a range of multi-channel television services to be provided by means of telecommunications systems.
