British Telecom to come back into mobile arena: wi-fi
In 2001 British Telecom spun off mmO2. But it cotinued marketing a set of mobile services under the brand BT Mobile Sense in association with mmO2. Now the rumours around the internet are that BT will establish a partnership with T-Mobile, to attract more customers to the BT Mobile Sense.

Other arm of BT, the OpenZone markets wi-fi and is keen to integrate GPRS and wi-fi, to allow seamless roaming between frequencies.

A few months ago BT adopted a new logo, retiring the old pipe man for the modern logo used by its internet operations. Perhaps one signal that the voice services will be dominated by the IP side of the company?
