BT Group and US drugs company Bristol-Myers Squibb have signed a USD500 million telecoms contract, according to analysts. The UK telco has refused to comment on the value of the deal, but according to the CEO of its Global Services division, Andy Green, it is ‘10 times’ the size of BT’s previous telecoms projects carried out in the US. Under the terms of the deal, BT will transfer Bristol-Myers’ voice and data communications network to a high-speed fibre-optic network based on the latest switching technology.
