  • Calling out a new pricing structure in pounds and pence
    on April 10, 2024

    In January, we announced that we would move away from inflation-linked price rises for our mobile, TV and broadband customers.We acted after an Ofcom consultation proposed that when people sign up to a phone, broadband or pay TV contract, they should be clear and certain about what they will have to pay throughout its duration. The regulator said price increases being linked to future inflation created too much uncertainty for consumers.Up until now, we have used a model that was introduced in response to Ofcom’s Fairness for Customers commitments in 2019 that adjusts customer pricing every year, on 31st March, by the rate of inflation (CPI) +3.9%. That price increase went ahead this year as normal at the end of March.We want to act in line with Ofcom’s guidance to move from % figures and CPI-linked changes for our monthly plans and provide certainty for our customers on exactly what their price change will be, and when. So, starting today (10 April), we will introduce a new model […]

  • A New Roaring 20s for Networks
    on March 26, 2024

    The 1920s saw huge technology-led developments in the areas of mass production, transportation, connectivity and electrification, each bringing profound changes for citizens, businesses and society.  Often nicknamed ‘the roaring twenties’, this period began with the consequences of war, a post pandemic period, high inflation and high interest rates.100 years later and I’m struck by the parallels I see: not only in the geo-political environment but also in the areas of mass production, transportation, connectivity and electrification. Technology-led developments in these areas are changing things again – this time, offering fantastic opportunities for digitization in the UK.If we look to mass production, we’re witnessing a cambrian rise of robotics. Transportation has seen major progress with the promise of autonomous cars, drones/aircraft, delivery bots and more. In the area of connectivity and new media, there are huge advances in spatial computing – virtual and mixed […]

  • Out with the old, in with the new – building a better BT
    on March 11, 2024

    Digital transformation. It’s a phrase we hear a lot as businesses. But what does it really mean? For me, it’s about becoming a modern business that uses technology as an enabler – a way to break our dependence on the old, and embrace newer, smarter ways of working. It’s about future-proofing.It’s a fascinating time to work in tech: more data, more technology, more devices, all helping us work faster, smarter, better. I’ve always seen change as a catalyst and use it as a way to reassess where we are going and find better ways forward. The opportunity is great for businesses, but the stakes are high. Can’t, or won’t adapt, and you’ll get left behind. Customers of all sizes in every location tell us about this challenge every day.Whether we’re talking about start-ups or multi-nationals, changing to keep pace with the digital world is business-critical for us all. And at BT, we’re doing two things: looking out, helping customers to reap the benefits of going digital; […]
