BT Newsbyte
BT's quarterly newsletter for analysts, consultants and investors - Issue 36 - December 2014
BT Newsbyte - the quarterly newsletter for analysts & investors, shining a spotlight on innovation, products and strategy across BT

Welcome

Hello and welcome to the December edition of ‘Newsbyte’.

In this issue, we give an update on BT Global Services' 'Art of Connecting' campaign and examine how the role of the CIO is evolving.

We highlight the launch of two new products: a business-grade IP voice service, BT Cloud Voice, from BT Business; and the Mobile Infill Infrastructure Solution (MiiS) from Openreach, which is an enabler to improved mobile coverage in rural and suburban black spots.

Our 'Newsbyte talks to' article contains an interview with Delia Bushell, Managing Director of BT TV & BT Sport, in which she tells us about her strategy for the business and gives her thoughts on recent market developments.

Our feature article gives an insight into BT Global Services' approach to innovation – how it works collaboratively with customers to help them transform their businesses.

We hope you enjoy the stories here and as always, don't forget to visit our website at http://www.btplc.com/sharesandperformance for presentations, press releases and videos. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact one of the team.
