Telecoms giant BT is looking to buy a major mobile network providers
24th November 2014

BT is planning to broaden it’s business by selling mobile deals as well as broadband and landlines.

It is in talks with the mobile companies O2 to consider making an alliance to cover all threes areas.

There has also been some speculation, although it is unconfirmed that they may be talking to EE too.

Vodaphone is the rival to all three companies, and it has just announced that it plans to launch a bundle including mobile (which they already have) with internet and TV.

If this were to go ahead, Vodaphone would have the market share of all three elements.

So in retaliation, BT is now in talks about making an alliance with either O2 or EE to build a rival network.

To talk more about this story is the Media Editor of the Evening Standard, Gideon Spanier.
