BT Mobile will be switching from Vodafone's network to EE's, pushing aggressively back into the mobile space it departed when it sold off Cellnet in 2002. There aren't many details available on the move yet, apart from the fact that EE has been selected from a number of various possible suppliers (three, at an informed guess) …
Here's hoping they manage to do something a bit more clever on pricing than what was offered when they were partnered with Vodafone.
At least in terms of public sector customers, they simply added 10%+ to the prevaling Voda tariffs, thereby assuring that they did zero business, other than with customers already tied to BT for fixed lines, who preferred to have one throat to choke, and were prepared to pay royally for the privilege.
And when asked, the UK coverage map the offered was a single sheet of A4, coloured blue. Sold!
Well Vodafone bought Cable and Wireless (competition with BT) so maybe that was a factor?
I would not actually be surprised if Vodafone (with their incoming cash pile from the sale of Verizon Wireless) were not interested in buying BT.
Wondered why my EE locked mobile briefly displayed the O2 logo last week.
Great deal BT
Currently you get a choice of two "great" kinda average handsets and a whole 10Mb data. An extra half a gb os only £5.70. Go BT! No really - just go.
... if you're bothered about central London coverage.
Work recently moved from Voda to EE, and despite appearances it seems that another network CAN be as bad as Vodafone is in central London (had two call drops this morning already)
