BT's quarterly newsletter for analysts, consultants and investors - Issue 42 - December 2016
BT Newsbyte - the quarterly newsletter for analysts & investors, shining a spotlight on innovation, products and strategy across BT


Hello and welcome to the latest edition of 'BT Newsbyte'.

In this issue, we announce the appointment of Openreach's first chairman. We describe how businesses are benefiting from our rollout of ultrafast broadband. And we look ahead to the exciting developments coming to BT TV next year.

Our feature article showcases the launch of 'LinkUK from BT' - the next generation of payphones in the UK.

We talk to Marc Allera, CEO of EE, who tells us about his 'More for more' strategy and why he wants the UK mobile industry to be 'Clear on Coverage'.

And there’s a '60-second guide' on how BT is using a network of smart, secure lockers to boost customer service and reduce carbon emissions.

We hope you enjoy the articles and as always, don't forget to visit our website here for presentations, press releases and videos. If you have any questions or want to speak to one of our experts, don't hesitate to contact one of the team.
