'Help us speed up Britain's mobiles': O2 chief sends out a powerful message to BT bosses
'Help us speed up Britain's mobiles... or you may land in court': O2 chief sends out a powerful message to BT bosses. Now, Evans wants the same access for mobile phone operators like O2, Three and Vodafone Media to increase surfing speed. Ironically, O2 was originally part of BT but the telecoms giant had to offload its mobile phone arm back in 2001 as part of a plan to reduce its then gargantuan debt pile. Uncertainty surrounding the UK’s exit from the EU has caused Evans to warn that Britain could miss out on hundreds of millions of pounds worth of investment in improving mobile speeds. While the future is certainly 5G, the destiny of O2 is rather less certain.
