BT's quarterly newsletter for analysts, consultants and investors - Issue 43 - March 2017
BT Newsbyte - the quarterly newsletter for analysts, consultants and 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 first business in the UK to benefit from Openreach's rollout of G.fast. We describe how 4G 'balloons' could revolutionise disaster recovery and improve mobile coverage in hard-to-reach areas. And we showcase a new, free service from BT that cracks down on the menace of nuisance calls.

The subject of our feature article is 'network slicing' – collaborative research between BT and Huawei into the agile support of services over tomorrow's 5G networks.

We have an interview with Gerry McQuade, CEO of BT's Wholesale and Ventures division, in which he gives us an overview of the business, the thinking behind its creation and his thoughts on his first year in BT.

And there's a '60-second guide' to BT Radianz.

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.
