UK ISP BT.com to Launch Revamped Website with New Features

Consumer ISP BT Retail has announced that it’s going to launch a new website in June 2013, which will include a variety of new features like a single log-in for customers (i.e. combining news, web search and email access with account and billing information).

The new site will apparently be built to work on traditional desktop computers as well smartphones and tablets, although hopefully this doesn’t mean that they adopt one of those annoying EE style tablet-friendly sites with huge text, pictures and far too much scrolling required in order to find anything useful.

Nick Wong, BT Retails Director of Online, said:

The new BT.com website is part of BT’s commitment to help our customers get even more value out of the time they spend online. By combining the latest editorial content with easy access to all their BT online services we want to make things simple and enjoyable for our customers.”

Visitors to the new BT.com can also expect to see a range of exclusive editorial, video and picture content across news, entertainment, technology and lifestyle. BT Sport, which launches this summer 2013, will additionally add a range of exclusively live sports action to the experience.

BT is working with global IT services provider Virtusa and hardware and software specialist Oracle (Oracle’s WebCenter Sites platform) to deliver the new page.

  1. Is the EE site friendly to any device?

    • Good point :). Seems a lot of sites, including Gov.uk, are going down the same path though. In other words they become big, dumb and really tedious to navigate. Hope BT just cleans up their site a bit instead of trying to follow by that example.

      I like Gov.UK. I recall seeing it in beta and liked the no clutter, no-nonsense approach, which was in stark contrast to the DirectGov site, which was dated and not at all appealing to the eye.

      BT need to remove the many:1 approach of linking the same page to many others, which is my biggest gripe in its current iteration.

  2. what have you got to be concerned about? you’re sensuous sufficient as it is

  3. Nice answer back in return of this issue with real arguments and telling
    the whole thing on the topic of that.
