25 Jun 2008

BT has announced an agreement to provide pay-TV broadcaster BSkyB with a wholesale voice service to support call services to its 1.1 million Sky Talk customers. In maintaining a high quality customer experience to Sky customers, the new agreement will see Sky benefit from BT’s national reach and economies of scale. Over the next few months, Sky Talk customers and their calls will be migrated to the BT Wholesale platform. Commenting on the agreement, Delia Bushell, Director of Broadband and Telephony at BSkyB, said: ‘In the last year alone over 740,000 new customers have joined Sky Talk for great value calls. This deal with BT will maintain our quality of service and ensure that we enjoy increasing cost efficiencies as we continue to grow the service.’
