In Touch
Winter 2016

In this issue of In Touch you can read about a visit we hosted for Gavin Barwell, Housing and Planning Minister to a see how ultrafast broadband will be benefiting a new housing development.

There is news about the next evolution of BT’s public payphone kiosks which will be installed in the London Borough of Camden in 2017 and our plans for further rollout. And you can read about the iconic BT Tower which has become the world’s highest Internet of Things base station and it was also one of the places our BT employees took calls in support for the BBC Children in Need appeal.

It’s great to see that Openreach have recruited nearly 100 additional London engineers, apprentices and graduates and we helped celebrate a key milestone with Movement to Work with Rio Ferdinand. And finally an unusual story about a BT time capsule that has been unearthed during the redevelopment of a former BT building.
