British Telecom Confirms Switch MVNO from Vodafone to EE
Published on: 25th Mar 2014
UK landline operator British Telecom (BT) has signed an MVNO agreement with the mobile network EE.
The two companies announced in October 2013 that they had agreed to proceed to contract, on an exclusive basis and have now finalised the agreement.
BT decided to seek a new mobile partnership last year and currently provides a range of mobile services, primarily to large corporates, the public sector and small and medium-sized enterprises. For consumers, it has a strong wi-fi presence that it plans to build on.
BT added that it will manage the change from its current MVNO provider, Vodafone.
It had been previously suggested that Vodafone dropped out of talks to renew the agreement.
British Telecom has been expected to make a bigger push into the mobile market after it won spectrum in last year's spectrum auction.
