BT strikes EE MVNO deal
UK’s BT and LTE mobile operator EE have made an exclusive agreement for EE to provide mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) services to BT’s enterprise customers.
The multi-year agreement, subject to final contract, further strengthens the existing relationship in telecommunications between BT and EE. BT, which has around 88,000 employees worldwide, decided to seek a new mobile partnership earlier this year.
BT currently provides a range of mobile services, primarily to large corporates, the public sector and small and medium-sized enterprises.
The telco has not had its own mobile operation since selling its O2 unit to Spain’s Telefónica for £18 billion (€22bn) in 2005.
