    BT Profit Beat, Regulatory Reset Smooth Path for Next CEO

    BT Group Plc offered investors some respite from a string of bad surprises as Britain’s former phone monopoly searches for a new chief executive, reporting quarterly results that beat expectations. BT shares were on track for their first earnings-day gain in six quarters after the company reported growth in its consumer business and outgoing Chief Executive Officer Gavin Patterson sought to draw a line under his tense relationship with industry regulators. The carrier, trying to bounce back from an accounting scandal in Italy, has been trying to fix other issues, too: it’s tackled spiraling sports rights costs, mitigated a massive pension deficit and made overtures to improve ties with watchdog Ofcom.

    BT Offers Discounts to Prompt Customer Switch to Fiber

    BT Group Plc is offering discounts to communication providers to get their customers onto faster broadband services, part of a push to boost internet speeds across Britain. Openreach, the infrastructure unit of the former phone monopoly, is offering wholesale customers that use the grid cheaper prices than the maximum set by regulators if they bring subscribers onto services that use fiber, rather than copper. BT is getting on board with a government goal for an expedited fiber rollout, to help Britain narrow the gap with countries like Spain and Portugal, after years resisting the call to speed investments.

    Britain could pay for the roll out of full-fibre broadband to its most remote regions with up to $6.6 billion of public money to tackle its position at the bottom of the European league for "gold standard" connectivity.

"We want everyone in the UK to benefit from world-class connectivity no matter where they live, work or travel," digital minister Jeremy Wright said.

    BT's Fundamental Value Is Overlooked

     BT Group BT is the incumbent telecom operator in the United Kingdom. In 2016, it bought EE, the country's largest wireless telecom operator, creating the only company that owns fixed-line as well as wireless telephone networks in the U.K. The U.K. has been slow to move to converged services, but we believe this acquisition will lead BT to push convergence similar to leading operators in several other European countries. BT's scale as the U.K.'s largest fixed-line, broadband, and wireless telecom operator provides the company with a narrow economic moat due to cost advantages.

    BT Shops for European Union Data Watchdog as Brexit Adds Hurdles
