    Aiming to re-energise staff, new head of Britain's BT hands out shares

    The new boss of Britain's BT Group will give each employee 500 pounds ($641) worth of shares, at a total cost of 50 million pounds, in one of his first moves to drive better performance at the telecoms giant. Philip Jansen took over the top job at the country's biggest mobile and fixed-line telecoms provider in February, tasked with overhauling the former monopoly and building the next generation networks that are central to the growth of the economy. "I'm asking our colleagues for their commitment to making BT a national champion and I want to give them ownership in our company and a share in our success," Jansen said on Thursday.

    Broadband firms must tell customers about best deals-UK regulator

    British broadband, phone and pay-TV firms must tell customers about their best deals to encourage them to switch away from uncompetitive contracts long after the initial offer period ends, British telecoms regulator Ofcom said on Wednesday. Ofcom said more than 20 million people had passed their initial contract period and many of them were now paying more than they needed to. It said customers who bundled their landline and broadband services together paid, on average, around 20% more when they are 'out of contract', rising to 26% for customers who also took a pay-TV service in their contracts.

    BT's new CEO throws down the gauntlet on ultrafast fibre

    The new boss of BT vowed to roll out full-fibre broadband to 15 million homes by the mid-2020s, offering to spearhead Britain's shift to ultrafast networks if the government and regulator make it worth its while. Chief Executive Philip Jansen said the first stage - rolling out fibre to 4 million premises by March 2021 from a previous target of 3 million - could be achieved without cutting the dividend this year. "Our aim is to deliver the best converged network and be the leader in fixed ultrafast and mobile 5G networks," Jansen said on Thursday.

    Timeline: BT bosses in spotlight in Italian accounting scandal

    A criminal investigation into accounting fraud inside British Telecom's Italian unit has uncovered more evidence of what prosecutors say was the involvement of senior executives in artificially inflating the division’s financial performance.

JANUARY 24 2017: BT CEO Gavin Patterson says in a statement an internal audit found “serious accounting irregularities” in its Italian operations that forced BT to write down the value of its Italian business by 530 million pounds and to cut estimated profits and revenues.

    Britain rebukes Huawei over security failings, discloses more flaws

    Britain publicly chastised China's Huawei Technologies for failing to fix long-standing security flaws in its mobile network equipment and revealed new "significant technical issues," increasing pressure on the company as it battles Western allegations that Beijing could use its gear for spying. The unusually direct criticism is a fresh blow to the world's largest maker of mobile network equipment, which has been under intense scrutiny in recent months. Officials in the United States and elsewhere have been increasingly public in voicing their concerns that Huawei's equipment could be used by Beijing for spying or sabotage, particularly as operators move to the next generation of mobile networks, known as 5G.

    New Chief Executive Officer Philip Jansen would have been well aware of the issues when he took the reins in February. Unfortunately for BT employees, Gavin Patterson’s inability to secure higher wholesale prices leaves Jansen with little option but to shed staff to turn things around at the former British national carrier, whose stock has lost half of its value over the past three years. The company is considering a plan to reduce its 100,000-strong workforce by as much as 25 percent over the next five years, Bloomberg News’s Thomas Seal reported on Wednesday.
