BT Newsbyte
BT's quarterly newsletter for analysts, consultants and investors - Issue 31 - July 2013
BT Newsbyte - the quarterly newsletter for analysts & investors, shining a spotlight on innovation, products and strategy across BT


Hello and welcome to the July edition of ‘Newsbyte'.

This quarter was very exciting for us with the launch of BT Sport in May at our new studios at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. BT Sport will be offered free to BT broadband customers and features a great line up of presenters and programmes. Marc Watson, chief executive officer of BT TV gives more detail in the lead article.

In May we also had our business update to analysts and investors in which each line of business CEO gave an update on the achievements of the past three years and plans for the future (see link on our 'events' page).

This issue also features articles on BT Business' plans to drive growth and an overview of BT Compute solutions offered by BT Global Services.

In addition, we talk to Tony Chanmugam, group finance director about his very successful cost transformation programme and his plans to continue to improve our cost base.

We hope you enjoy the stories here and as always, don't forget to visit our website atwww.btplc.com/sharesandperformancefor presentations, press releases and videos. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact one of the team.
