We provide network products and services to more than 1,400 communications providers (CPs) operating in Great Britain. We offer services for media companies and broadcasters, and our ventures teams offer a broad range of products and services. We are also leading the BT thinking on the Internet of Things (IoT).
In the wholesale operation, we’re seeing the traditional market shrinking as some CPs build their own network infrastructure. But the demand for next-generation services like Ethernet is expanding, and we’re committed to making sure our customers get the great products and services they demand.
Our Media & Broadcast team provides real time video, audio and data transmission solutions for content owners, producers and channel service providers. We serve more than 500 media production and distribution customers across the globe, streaming up to 16,000 hours of content a day, all through our video switches at the BT Tower.
On the ventures side, our portfolio includes the following businesses:
We continue to develop our Ventures businesses which generated revenue of £77m.
Our Fleet business was voted Van and Truck Fleet Management Company of the Year and Supplier of the Year at the annual Commercial Fleet Awards.
We also launched our Pelipod secure storage offering. This speeds up and simplifies the supply chain that serves field engineers working throughout the UK.
In Q3 2016/17 we announced the launch of a new service called LinkUK from BT, which will see sleek, ultramodern kiosks rolled out to major high streets across the capital. Londoners will benefit from the fastest free public wi-fi available, free UK landline and mobile standard rate calls and a range of other free digital services, thanks to a new partnership between BT, Intersection and Primesight.
