EE Sign Deal to Provide UK Mobile Virtual Network Operator Services to BT

Thursday, Oct 10th, 2013 (11:22 am) - Score 830

BT has today moved one step closer to expanding their mobile solutions after it signed an “exclusive” multi-year agreement with EE (Everything Everywhere), which will provide the predominantly fixed line telecoms firm with Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) services.

The deal, which is still subject to final contract, effectively means that BT has chosen to replace its existing 9-year MVNO agreement with Vodafone in favour of EE. BT said that the operator would work to “ensure a seamless transition for customers“.

At the same time BT has been looking to bolster its own mobile and wifi solutions, especially after they managed to acquire a nice slice of the 2.6GHz radio spectrum band for £201.5 million during Ofcom’s 4G (LTE / Mobile Broadband) auction earlier this year (here).

BT’s former CEO, Ian Livingston, said in February 2013, “We have said that we do not intend to build a national mobile network. Instead, this spectrum will complement our existing strategy of delivering a range of services using fixed and wireless broadband. We want our customers to enjoy the best possible connections wherever they are and this spectrum, together with our investment in fibre broadband, will help us achieve that.”
