BT Group’s Equinox 2 Awaits Regulatory Go Ahead
According to the most recent BT Group news, Britain’s telecom regulator, Ofcom, is yet to make a decision on its Equinox 2 wholesale fibre pricing.

The delay comes due to regulatory concerns that the new fibre network pricing could be unhealthy for the competitors.

After a pullback in February, the shares rebounded in March once again. The ongoing recovery in FTSE 100 index is also a major reason behind the positive sentiment in the UK share market.
