  • Why Did It Take an Activist So Long to Call BT?

    Why Did It Take an Activist So Long to Call BT?

    When it became apparent back in May that BT was willing to at least consider selling a stake in its Openreach operation, CEO Gavin Patterson's goal seemed to be to fend off prospective activist investors and keep his job. Patterson is set to be replaced later this year, and Einhorn's hedge fund Greenlight Capital LLC has built a “medium-sized” position in the phone company, according to the Times. While BT shares have rebounded from their low in May, they are still trading at close to their lowest level since 2013.

    BT incentives operators to move customers to faster broadband

    Britain's BT Group said on Tuesday it would encourage telecom operators to move residential and business customers onto faster broadband by offering them long-term discounts on its network. The company, which runs Britain's biggest telecoms network, said the discounts would go beyond the pricing controls set by regulator Ofcom and would be available to any operator that grew its customer base by an agreed proportion. Clive Selley, chief executive of BT's network unit Openreach, said the offer would help Britain's homes and businesses to experience the benefits of faster and more reliable broadband.
