BT's quarterly newsletter for analysts, consultants and investors - Issue 41 - September 2016
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 set the record straight on the health of the UK's internet. We report on Openreach's testing of long-range VDSL in the Outer Hebrides. And we introduce 'Dynamic Network Services', our near-term vision for our global network.

The subject of our feature article is BT's first statement on Modern Slavery which sets out what we're doing to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking from occurring in our business operations and supply chains.

Our 'Newsbyte talks to' article contains an interview with Clive Selley, CEO of Openreach, in which he gives an update on his strategy of 'better service, broader coverage and faster speeds'.

And the '60-second guide' shines a spotlight on key aspects of MK:Smart, Milton Keynes' smart city initiative.

We hope you enjoy the articles 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.
