BT taps EE for mobile connectivity offering

UK fixed line incumbent BT said Thursday it has signed an exclusive MVNO agreement with EE to provide mobile communications to its customers and 88,000 employees.

The multi-year agreement builds on an existing relationship between BT and EE under which BT provides wifi connectivity to EE customers. BT already delivers mobile services to business customers under an MVNO deal with Vodafone however that contract was terminated earlier this year.

BT said it will carefully manage the change from the current MVNO to EE to ensure a seamless transition for customers, initially focusing on large corporates, the public sector and small and medium-sized enterprises. The company said that “For consumers, it has a strong wifi presence that it plans to build on,” and it is not beyond the realms of possibility that the EE MVNO deal could see BT make a return to the consumer mobile space for the first time in 13 years, when BT spun off O2 (then Cellnet).
