Vodafone enters broadband market

Strikes fixed-line deal with BT

Vodafone has struck a deal with BT that will allow the mobile operator to use existing fixed-line networks to provide a broadband service in the UK.

Vodafone expects that this service will be available before the end of the year. Using BT's infrastructure means that Vodafone will not have to fork out to build its own network, which it says will 'complement' its existing mobile services.

"Choosing BT as our partner enables us to provide high quality fixedline broadband services to customers quickly and cost-efficiently right across the UK," said Nick Read, chief executive of Vodafone BT.

There is currently no information in the public domain about the nature of Vodafone's proposed fixed-line offerings.
