BT and EE sign exclusive MVNO agreement

BT and EE have signed an agreement to proceed, on an exclusive basis, to a contract for EE to provide mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) services to BT’s customers and employees.

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 and has terminated its contract with Vodafone.

BT currently provides a range of mobile services, primarily to large corporates, the public sector and small and medium-sized enterprises. For consumers, it has a strong Wi-Fi presence that it plans to build on.

BT will carefully manage the change from the current MVNO, Vdoafone to EE to ensure a seamless transition for customers.

EE is the largest and most advanced digital communications company in Britain, delivering mobile and fixed communications services to consumers, businesses, government and the wholesale market. With more than 15,000 employees and 600 retail stores, EE serves more than 27 million customers on EE, Orange and T-Mobile mobile and broadband plans.

EE runs the UK’s biggest and fastest mobile network, having introduced the UK’s first and only superfast 4G mobile service in 2012. EE’s 4G coverage currently reaches more than 60 pecent of the population, with plans to cover 98 percent by the end of 2014.
