LONDON -- O2 and BT Wholesale today announced a significant extension to their existing relationship, which allowed O2 to enter the fixed-line market for business customers back in 2009. The new contract extension, in itself worth several hundreds of millions of pounds over five years, will see the two companies working together to provide an integrated suite of ICT services for UK businesses.

The agreement includes connectivity, infrastructure and professional services agreements. The combination of O2 and BT Wholesale’s portfolio will enable O2 to offer its business customers a fully-integrated suite of ICT services, to include mobile, Ethernet and fibre broadband for the very first time.

In addition to superfast connectivity on O2’s growing 4G network - which now covers a third of the UK population - business customers will also benefit from speeds of up to 80 megabits per second over BT’s fibre broadband network. Additionally, O2 will benefit from BT Wholesale’s extensive national Ethernet network and product portfolio, which includes the widest range of access options in the market, to underpin their own fixed line based services.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
