Broadband from the Post Office on the way
Reuters has the news that the Post Office has signed a £750 million four year contract with BT Wholesale to supply wholesale broadband services. This is apparently the largest single contract signed by BT Wholesale.
BT Wholesale launched a 'white label managed services' platform in the last financial quarter, which takes away the risks and costs of running a network and developing new products for potential broadband providers.

The managed platform is known as BT Broadband Scope, a BT Wholesale presentation on the service for those keen to read more can be found on www.btwholesale.com.
