Residents urged to look out for attempts by BT to remove public payphones in strath

BT-A

Highland Council's convener is calling for eyes and ears on the ground to report any attempts by BT to remove public payphones. Councillor Bill Lobban, local member for Badenoch and Strathspey, said: "It would appear that elsewhere in the Highlands BT has been removing telephone boxes despite being prevented from doing so. "If you see any box in the strath being removed or if you see any form of notice being displayed that the box is due for removal then please let me know as a matter of urgency." A Highland Council spokesperson said: "This may be new public notices appearing in call boxes, or the kiosks actually being removed such as for 'repair'. "These removals are additional to the consultation which recently concluded and may include boxes which were not recently consulted on.

BT Wholesale and IDNet move to beat PSTN switch-off

BT-A

The project is expected to last five years and will be supported with bespoke licences and targets, and should remind BT’s channel of the benefits of keeping customers alerted to the forthcoming changes with PSTN. “There is still some way to go before the nation is fully ready for the switch-off and the transition to all-IP, but capabilities like BT’s WHC service will enable our channel partners to deliver a key IP solution to their customers to support their digital transformation journeys.”.

Will the 125p BT share price ever return to £3?

BT-A

The BT (LSE: BT.A) share price has been one of the biggest losers of the coronavirus pandemic. The stock has collapsed in value this year as investors have sold out of the telecommunications giant. However, despite the stock’s recent performance, fundamentally, the business remains strong. As such, I’ve been taking a closer look at the company recently, with the view to adding some shares to my portfolio. It has also increased the company’s market position as consumers have required a provider they can trust in these uncertain times. If the company can capitalise on this opportunity in the years ahead, I think the BT share price could produce large total returns for investors. And that’s the primary reason why I’m eyeing up the business right now. A return to growth could dramatically improve investor sentiment towards the BT share price, in my opinion, driving the stock significantly higher from its current depressed level.

Telco carrier to tech firm: BT Global Services CEO on reshaping the company

BT-A

By Aimee Chanthadavong | November 20, 2020 -- 00:50 GMT (00:50 GMT) | Topic: Networking. Since its inception, BT Global Service has operated as a pure global telecommunications provider, but these days the company has its sights set on being more than just that. Speaking to ZDNet, BT Global Services CEO Bas Burger explained that for the last two years the company has been adding cybersecurity, cloud, and networking to its remit to become more broadly known as a tech company, and not just a carrier. That process has so far involved BT building an "over-the-top platform that is going to allow us to -- in a completely digital native and data-centric way -- manage end-to-end performance of networks, whether it's our own network or somebody else's network", according to Burger. "So the way in which you can utilise different types of networks is determined by software -- so that is a technology shift in the whole industry -- but we saw this coming already some years ago, and therefore we pivoted our strategy towards that new world." As next steps, the UK-based conglomerate is looking to launch another platform that Burger said would be designed to better utilise its threat data, as part of efforts to help speed up the response time to identify and react to potential threats.

BT-A

Fixed-mobile trial will test quantum security on mobile(Image credit: Pixabay). BT is joining forces with several UK startups to stage the world’s first trial of end-to-end quantum-secured communications for 5G and connected cars.

BT chief 'open minded' on sale of stake in Openreach

BT-A

LONDON (Reuters) - BT Chief Executive Philip Jansen is "open minded" about the possibility of selling a stake in the British company's Openreach infrastructure unit once there is full clarity on the regulation of fibre networks next year, he said on Wednesday. "We feel - I feel - that really BT is undervalued for the kind of business that we are and the assets that we have," he told Morgan Stanley's Technology, Media and Telecom conference. He said Openreach was one such undervalued asset, reflecting in part the regulatory uncertainty facing the unit. "Would I be open minded about looking at a minority interest on it, moving that on to someone else? Potentially. But I can't see us doing that until well after we've agreed the regulatory framework, until March, April next year." But it made strategic sense to keep Openreach, he added.
