BT's quarterly newsletter for analysts, consultants and investors - Issue 35 - September 2014
BT Newsbyte - the quarterly newsletter for analysts & investors, shining a spotlight on innovation, products and strategy across BT


Hello and welcome to the September edition of 'Newsbyte'.

In this issue, we give an overview of the new BT One Phone service from BT Business. BT One Phone brings together all of a company's office phone system and mobile phone needs into a single service, hosted in the Cloud and delivered on a mobile phone.

BT Sport celebrated its first birthday in August, so we've taken the opportunity to look back on a great first year and to highlight recent developments that will further enhance the viewing experience.

We have our first interview with Joe Garner, CEO of Openreach, in which he tells us about the importance of building Britain's connected future, his strategy for Openreach and his immediate priorities.

With the internet becoming increasingly central in our daily lives, shielding children from inappropriate content has become a concern for many parents. Our feature article describes what BT is doing to help families keep children safe online by providing practical advice and a network-based tool to provide peace of mind.

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