I was talking to someone the other day about rss feeds and they asked whether or not our telecoms regulator in the UK, Ofcom, had any RSS feeds for press releases and/or consultation documents, as they wanted to get rid of the email update they get.
Yes, I replied, they do, but that you’d not know it from their website. Ofcom did a trial of rss feeds for both press releases and consultation documents around 18 months ago, and whilst the feed for the press releases still works the one for consultations disappeared. Has Ofcom decided to ‘launch’ / promote rss at any point? … nope.
Are they alone? Do other telecoms regulators offer feeds? Well, they’re by no means common, but they can be found … and often in the most surprising places:
If anyone knows of any others, please let me know.
UPDATE: It seems Ofcom actually have a whole load of feeds now – full list here. However I still cannot find anything on the home page or any other page that informs you about there existence.
