BT Group rebrands to show it’s not just about telecoms

BT-A

BT Group has rebranded, in a bid to highlight the range of technology services the company offers, aside from telecoms and broadband. The new look is part of a wider brand strategy to increase public awareness of the company’s more holistic services, such as its digital skills programme in schools, and its work on global cyber security, for which it has Adastral Park, a tech campus in Ipswich. The rebrand also aims to draw attention to what the company is doing in terms of equality, sustainability and the environment – it has a target of using 100% renewable electricity globally by 2020, and has a relatively low gender pay gap of 6% compared to the UK average of 9.6%, and also gives more women than men bonuses. The use of BT’s existing typeface, BT Font, originally designed by type foundry Dalton Maag, has been retained and used in different weights across all copy. As well as the overarching BT Group brand, the new identity has been used consistently across BT’s four main sub-brands, which are BT TV, BT Sport, BT Redcare and BT Wholesale.

EE gets a £100,000 fine for spam text messages

BT-A

ICO slaps EE with a £100,000 fine for spam text messages. EE HAS RECEIVED an expensive slap on the wrist from the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) for text messages sent out to customers. The telecoms giant is £100,000 poorer after sending out 2.5 million direct marketing text messages to customers who had opted out. EE claimed that the texts were "service messages" rather than marketing ones, but while they encouraged customers to take advantage of the My EE app, they also invited them to upgrade their phone. As a result, the ICO "found the messages contained direct marketing and that the company sent them deliberately," though it "acknowledges that EE did not deliberately set out to breach electronic marketing laws." As Andy White, the ICO's director of investigations, said: "The direct marketing guidance is clear: if a message that contains customer service information also includes promotional material to buy extra products for services, it is no longer a service message and electronic marketing rules apply. "EE Limited were aware of the law and should have known that they needed customers' consent to send them in line with the direct marketing rules. Companies should be aware that texts and emails providing service information which also include a marketing or promotional element must comply with the relevant legislation or could face a fine up to £500,000." If we were EE executives looking at this from a ‘glass half full' approach, we'd probably conclude that this is not £100,000 lost, but £400,000 saved.

EE-k, a hundred grand! BT's mobile arm slapped for sending 2.5m+ unwanted texts

BT-A

The £100,000 penalty handed down by the UK's Information Commissioner's Office (PDF) was for sending mailers in early 2018 that pestered punters to download and use the My EE app to manage their account, and to upgrade their phone. Just for good measure, a second round of messages were subsequently sent to EE customers that had decided not to interact with, use or download the app after the first wave of nagging. In total, the mobile operator distributed 16.6 million messages to customers between February and March last year, and 2.59 million of these were to people who had opted out of receiving marketing messages via text. The UK's data watchdog conceded EE "did not deliberately set out to breach electronic marketing laws" but said it had "failed to take reasonable steps to prevent the contraventions." Andy White, ICO director of investigations said:.

Explained: Modi's Bt cotton connection and why his govt needs to wake up on GMO

BT-A

HT Bt cotton is not legally allowed by GoI. But, the government’s own committee has estimated that it is being planted on about 15-17% of cotton area. The famous 24-day Dandi March (also known as Salt March), a nonviolent civil disobedience against the British monopoly on salt in 1930, became a symbol of Satyagraha. But today, it is much in news because of the civil disobedience movement launched by supporters of Shetkari Sanghatana (SS), a farmers’ organisation, to defy the controls by Government of India (GoI) on the planting of Herbicide Tolerant (HT) Bt cotton and Bt brinjal. Newspaper reports suggest that one farmer with HT Bt seeds has also been arrested. If the government is really serious not to allow this, let it show its might by arresting hundreds of thousands of farmers who have already planted HT Bt cotton. And why not first arrest the fraudulent seed companies that have been selling these seeds illegally and without any patent. The big multinational companies, who are the original innovators of HT Bt cotton, have stayed away from this messy business and, in fact, have decided to withdraw most of their high biotech farm technology from India.

The BT share price: Here’s what I’d do now

BT-A

The BT share price: Here’s what I’d do now. Blue-chip FTSE 100 companies might not be as exciting as their small-cap peers but, most of the time, you can depend on them to give you a predictable income stream from dividends as well as steady capital growth over the long term. In total over the past five years, including dividends paid to investors, the BT share price has underperformed the FTSE 100 by 12.6% per annum — that’s a huge gap. Indeed, analysts have pencilled in a decline of 14% in earnings per share for the current financial year. While the City is expecting the group to return to growth the year after, considering the fact the company’s earnings have fallen since 2016, I want to see more concrete progress before trusting this optimistic forecast. If BT can prove to the market it has returned to growth, then I think it will be worth reconsidering the opportunity here. However, until growth returns, I see limited upside for the shares from current levels. Even though the stock looks cheap, I think it’s cheap for two reasons.

5G is real and lightning fast (sometimes): Here's everything you need to know

BT-A VZ +1 more BT-A VZ T

Back in April, the early tests of Verizon's 5G network were a mess, with erratic and inconsistent coverage and only some areas where you could experience 5G's true speeds with the Motorola Z3 and its 5G Moto Mod. But a follow-up test in May with the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, which had the 5G radio integrated into the phone, proved to be a much better experience, with speeds above 1 gigabit per second, or faster than Google Fiber. This follows months of companies chipping in some last-minute hype, from Qualcomm talking during its Snapdragon Tech Summit in December about how the technology would evolve this year, to a number of prototype 5G phones shown off at MWC 2019. 5G initially used super-high-frequency spectrum, which has shorter range but higher capacity, to deliver a massive pipe for online access. But given the range and interference issues, the carriers are also using lower-frequency spectrum -- the type used in today's networks -- to help ferry 5G across greater distances and through walls and other obstructions. Verizon has hit pause on the rollout until it can convert things to the globally recognized 5G standard. As of the end of December, AT&T was turning on its mobile 5G network in a dozen cities, and more specifically in "dense urban and high-traffic areas."
