BT is being forced by industry regulator Ofcom to drop its wholesale price by 12% each year until 2014, meaning many rural broadband customers could see their bills lowered.

It's hoped the move, which came into effect this week, will lead to stronger competition from those ISPs and therefore lower prices in those areas.

UK court backs internet piracy act: BT and TalkTalk lose case

The Digital Economy Act, a controversial new law to tackle online piracy in the UK, has been backed by the High Court, despite complaints from ISPs. Telecoms providers BT and TalkTalk have lost an attempt to block aspects of the Digital Economy Act, which they see as placing undue responsibility on them for tackling illegal filesharing.

But ruling judge Mr Justice Parker dismissed all the claims, except for one relating to the costs order, when he removed the ISPs' obligation to pay 25% of watchdog Ofcom's costs and the costs of establishing an appeals body. The high-court ruling can be seen as a victory for record companies, film studios and other rights holders, who have lobbied intensively for greater legal powers to stem piracy.
