On August 30th, Eircom announced its intention to launch a new Capacity Based Bitstream product for its wholesale customers. Eircom stated that it would commence taking orders for this product on September the 24th.

The Commission for Communications Regulation (ComReg) directed Eircom, on Friday 14th September, not to launch this product and to refrain from taking and processing orders for this product, until such a time as Eircom demonstrates, to ComReg’s satisfaction, that it (Eircom) is fully compliant with all of its regulatory obligations, including those arising from Eircom’s dominance of the Wholesale Broadband Access market.

That’s the entire statement, by the way. Ouch. Here’s the product.

What’s going on here?
