Ofcom, the UK's telecoms regulator, is calling for public assistance in creating new and improved rules that will govern the telecoms industry in the future. The move has been initiated because of the high pace of change in this sector and the sharp increase of complaints. The regulator is also investigating how mobile networks can be expanded.
Ofcom chief executive Ed Richards in a statement to the BBC said: 'With significant market and technology developments under way, now is the right time to ask some tough questions about the future approach to regulation.'
Ofcom also declared to the BBC that mobile phones were continuing to rise in popularity and would soon out-strip landline operations. It said that mobile calls were 'set to outnumber fixed calls in the UK within the next 12 to 18 months'.
