Company Overview

Originally one half of the Post Office, BT is still the UK's leading fixed line telecoms group. Rapid expansion in the late nineties, however, forced BT to sell off assets such as mobile arm O2 and yellow pages group Yell to slash its debt pile. Its three major divisions are Retail, Global Services and Wholesale.
