BT starts tender process for new mobile services partner

Thursday 25 April 2013 | 10:42 CET | News
BT has started looking for a partner to provide mobile services to its consumer and business customers, as well as supplying BT staff, reports the Financial Times. People close to the tender process said that the company was looking to connect customers using voice and internet services on devices in and out of the home. BT recently paid around GBP 200 million for 4G mobile spectrum. One source said that any spectrum deal would favour a deal with mobile operator O2 (formerly Cellnet), which BT divested in 2001. BT confirmed to the FT that it was looking for a new mobile partner.
