BT and EE today announced they have signed a contract under which EE will provide various mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) services to BT’s customers and employees based in the UK.
The multi-year agreement further strengthens the existing relationship in telecommunications between BT and EE.
BT decided to seek a new mobile partnership last year and 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 its current UK MVNO provider to EE to ensure a seamless transition for customers.
As part of the agreement, BT mobile customers will be able to access 2G, 3G and 4G services. The two companies announced in October 2013 that they had agreed to proceed to contract, on an exclusive basis and have now finalised the agreement.
