Ofcom is seeking to reduce the prices charged by BT Openreach for wholesale broadband and landline usage, it has been reported.

The media regulator is seeking reduced charges for both Wholesale Line Rental (WLR) services and rival Local Loop Unbundling (LLU) lines, reports ISPreview.co.uk.

Following legal changes implemented in 2011, Ofcom is required to submit charge control proposals to the European Commission for review.

Under Ofcom's draft decision, the price charged by Openreach for a fully unbundled line to a property will be cut from £91.50 to £87.41.

A shared unbundled line to a property will cost £11.92 per year, down from £14.70. And wholesale line rental costs will be cut from £103.68 per year to £98.81.

A number of UK broadband providers - including Sky, TalkTalk and O2 - provide home broadband services using BT Openreach's network of poles and ducts.
