BT acquires EE and announces new organisational structure 

Mobile communications

Following the completion of the acquisition of EE, BT has announced a new organisational structure that will take effect from April. The acquisition is good news for customers, shareholders and the UK as BT and EE combine the power of fibre broadband with the convenience of mobile.

EE will become a separate consumer-focused line of business within the group. We will operate a multi-brand strategy with UK customers being able to choose BT, EE or Plusnet services, depending on what suits them.

Under the new structure there will be six lines of business. Two will serve consumers, while two will focus on businesses and the public sector , one of these in the UK and Ireland and one globally. The remaining two will be Openreach and a new Wholesale and Ventures business.

We’re also creating a new organisation, called Business and Public Sector, to better serve our business and public sector customers in the UK, combining BT Business with EE’s business division and some of BT Global Services’ UK corporate and public sector.

BT Global Services will continue to focus on serving multinational companies and major customers outside the UK. In the UK, its attention will now be on global corporate and financial services customers.

Openreach will continue to serve UK communication providers offering: equivalent access to its network and managing the rollout of superfast and ultrafast broadband.
