In July this year, telecoms regulator OFCOM ruled that where BT is the only provider of fixed internet access, it must reduce its wholesale costs to other broadband suppliers by 12% below the rate of inflation.
In the 01482 dialling code area, KC (part of the KCOM group) has a monopoly in both fixed line broadband and telecoms. As a result, taxpayers in the Hull area are paying inflated bills because they have no choice in who provides their services.
In 2008, OFCOM ruled that KCOM was not preventing other companies entering the marketplace, and that those companies said it was not in their commercial interest to offer their services to the people in Hull. In the last three years, there have been important changes.
If BT has to reduce its wholesale prices where it has a monopoly, the same should apply to KCOM. This will benefit taxpayers in the Hull area enormously who are currently paying a heavy price for KCOM's monopoly.
David Starkey and the BBC should be made to give a public apology for the unacceptable comments made on the BBC's Newsnight.
Unacceptable comments made:
''The whites have become black''
"This language which is wholly false, which is this Jamaican patois that’s been intruded in England, and this is why so many of us have this sense of literally a foreign country."
"Listen to David Lammy, an archetypical successful black man, if you turned the screen off so you were listening to him on radio you’d think he was white."
Please be assured that this petition has already been submitted to Ofcom and I am awaiting a response.
Please also submit your complaints to Ofcom via the 'website link' above and add a link to this petition.

Lately rodent images are being more and more often showed across all media, including TV, despite that many people find it absolutely inappropriate, offensive and upsetting.
Not to mention that images with rats and mice can cause severe discomfort and anxiety in kids and people, who have phobia for rats and mice. Please help to protect them by signing this petition.
OFCOM is an important part of ensuring that news media broadcasts are fair and impartial. Under Conservative plans it would be scrapped which would allow further biasing of the UK media according to the whim of Rupert Murdoch.
To quote David Cameron:
"with a Conservative Government, OFCOM as we know it will cease to exist. Its remit will be restricted to its narrow technical and enforcement roles. It will no longer play a role in making policy. And the policy-making functions it has today will be transferred back fully to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport."
This will allow politicians to control the media as they see fit and remove any hope of ever having an impartial media.
