EE-UK-5G-Mobile-Signal-on-the-Beach

8th Aug 2022 (13 Comments)

Mobile and broadband provider BT (EE) and Nokia claim to have achieved somewhat of a “European first” by aggregate four channels of radio spectrum in a live 5G Standalone (SA) network.

5th Aug 2022 (12 Comments)

The recent two-day national strike by up to 38,000 of BT and Openreach’s unionised workers (here) – due to a dispute over pay – does not appear to have caused any significant problems for either the operator or its customers. At least that is the feedback we’ve had from UK broadband ISPs and alternative networks.

5th Aug 2022 (18 Comments)

Low cost focused UK ISP TalkTalk has finally reached an agreement to acquire around 100,000 broadband and phone customers from rival operator Ovo Energy, which is perhaps more familiar to consumers by the brand name of SSE (i.e. OVO’s retail division acquired that base in 2020 and has retained the brand under licence).
