OFTEL DECISION ON BT’S LICENCE

By CBR Staff Writer

In a landmark decision that opens the way to much freer competition in international telecommunications, Oftel, the UK Office of Telecommunications, has ruled that British Telecom’s licence requires that customers who request it be connected to the private line international circuits to be offered by start-up Pan American Satellite of Greenwich, Connecticut: PanAmSat, a sole proprietorship of entrepreneur Reynold Anselmo, wants to compete with the Intelsat consortium in international telecommunications with a satellite due to be launched on Ariane in May; Oftel ruled that there was no requirement for Mercury Communications Ltd to link its subscribers to PanAmSat.
