What people say about us

“A well-respected safe pair of hands is critical. Delivering the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games without BT would simply have been inconceivable."
- Sebastian Coe, Chair, London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games

BT has been named Frost & Sullivan’s “2012 European Unified Communications Service Provider of the Year”.

“BT Global Services has an end-to-end UC portfolio, including global network infrastructure, professional and managed services and comprehensive conferencing services. It has one of the industry-leading videoconferencing and telepresence offers. BT has pioneered the development of web-hosted video meeting services, launching video telepresence exchanges, and exchange-to-exchange video communication services. The provider’s UC portfolio – now termed ‘BT One’ – has clear linkages to other areas across BT’s service areas, setting it apart from many of its competitors. In addition, the company delivers customised solutions for a number of vertical markets, notably Financial Services, Retail and Pharma – such focused services place BT at a strong advantage among companies that are seeking a partner that has proven knowledge and expertise in their specific industry.”
- Adrian Drozd, Research Director at Frost & Sullivan

“As the national incumbent, BT enjoys unmatched fixed network, service and sales reach, alongside unsurpassed brand name recognition and a deeply entrenched local presence. The incumbent offers a diverse and comprehensive portfolio of broadband-based services, including appealing product bundles combining numerous elements such as connectivity, IPTV, mobile broadband, security, storage, WiFi and home networking support.”
- BT Company Assessment, Current Analysis,  January 30th, 2012

- Major Dave Whitaker, Head of Voice Services, DE&S ISS, DFTS

“BT has a well deserved reputation of being a great source of innovation and thought leadership. Like us, BT operates globally, addressing the needs of many of the best known brands in the world.

- Petra Kiwitt, Executive Vice President, DHL Solutions & Innovations

“Our forces depend on computer networks, both in the UK and in operations around the world. Over the last 5 years we’ve seen a significant rise in the number of threats to the UK’s national security through cyberspace, so it is crucial that we look to constantly improve our defence mechanisms to meet those threats.
“BT has already delivered a world-leading solution, so it makes sense to develop our relationship further.”
- Air Commodore Tim Bishop, Head of Service Operations, MOD

“Information – and the ability to share it rapidly across a coalition – plays a paramount role in 21st century operations, as well as political decision-making. To underpin this we need a flexible, future-proof network. BT has, over the years, developed an in-depth understanding of the specific challenges we face. Their BT Connect portfolio is particularly well designed to support our communications needs.”
- Georges D’hollander, General Manager, Consultation, Command and Control Agency, NATO (NC3A)

“We chose to work with BT because of their UK scale, and their ability to provide a reliable and robust portfolio of business critical Networked IT Services.”
- Ian Dyson, IT Group Operations Director, The Co-operative Group
