BT's aiming at seamless content delivery across mobile and fixed
Published at : 26 Jan 2021
The winds of change continue to blow through the incumbent UK operator. It's over a year now since wholesale arm Openreach was spun out of the parent organisation to become an independent company in its own right; the slow and difficult integration of mobile service provider EE into BT continues and the telco is about to part company with it's latest CEO who has presided over a long decline in the BT share price. None of this makes the job of BT's CTIO any easier but Howard Watson takes a very positive view of the future. He says "BT is very much focused on delivering converged and differentiated experiences to customers. And right at the heart of that is taking a truly integrated approach to the network." He says that 5G will be at the heart of BT's converged network and that the company has a well-defined strategy for its introduction. He is also enthusiastic about the open networking trend, its positive impact on the network and the expanded choice it provides.
