    Our story

    We’re connecting millions to information and entertainment, to friends and family, at home or on the move. Whether they’re banking on their laptop, watching movies through their YouView box, or tweeting on their smartphone, we’re making it fast, safe, reliable and easy. And we’re backing it up with great service.

    We’re proud to be the world’s oldest communications company but we’re coming at new markets like mobile, TV and sport with the disruptive attitude of a start-up.

    We’re also helping more customers help themselves online, whenever it suits them. And we’re giving them excellent content to draw them in: bt.com is our portal (as well as our online shop-front) so it’s got to be appealing, useful and interesting. We keep it that way with the most important news stories, entertaining videos, and useful life hacks to help with things like personal finance, and all their tech and gadgets.
