Vodafone to provide home broadbandMobile giant strikes deal with BT
11 September 2006
Mobile phone company Vodafone said today it plans to enter the home broadband market by the end of the year.
The move, which comes after the company struck a deal with BT, will see Vodafone's 16.2 million UK customers offered bundled packages of mobile and broadband services.
Satellite giant Sky has also entered the broadband market; it bought Easynet for £211 million last year.
The deal between Vodafone and BT allows Vodafone to use BT's fixed-line network to provide broadband services to its customers without owning the fixed-lines.
