Wayleave Rates for Telecoms Cable


The article at the link below considers the cost of wayleaves and asks why wayleave rates for buried fibre have gone up instead of down since the 2017 Electronic Communications Code updated the Digital Economy Act given that the revised code was meant to reduce costs and delays.

The new Code indicates that rates should be based on the loss of value to the landowner instead of open market value.
