BT consumer mobile

Is BT's intention to launch a consumer mobile network? Again? ;)

Probably not.

BT has an exclusive deal with EE to provide their employees with service and a MVNO service to their business customers.

There's a possibility of them operating consumer MVNO on EE, but my opinion is that they won't, as they would have to hire more staff, and deal with other costs associated with running a MVNO in what is already a pretty competitive market.

As for that 4G spectrum they won:
Ian Livingston, BT chief executive, said: “We are pleased to have secured this spectrum. We have said that we do not intend to build a national mobile network. Instead, this spectrum will complement our existing strategy of delivering a range of services using fixed and wireless broadband. We want our customers to enjoy the best possible connections wherever they are and this spectrum, together with our investment in fibre broadband, will help us achieve that.”
