takeover by BT


[link to this post]
 
Hi, does anybody know the consequences of the takeover (if approved ) of EE by BT. Do we get new BT routers ? etc.

At this stage no.

EE Home broadband might even continue as a sub brand

I imagine nothing much would change for some time. Who knows what will happen to the whole branding thing. It's not impossible that BT will want to retain existing retail arrangements to create some separation (after all, Plusnet is run very differently to BT Retail).

No, and if they do their due diligence properly (as I expect, it's BT and they're not stupid) then Orange/T-mobile/EE will get hammered, and rightly so. Frankly I think the whole shenanigans (and that's the right word for this cobbled-together outfit) needs to be ripped apart and rebuilt from scratch. EE never had a future (nor Orange in FT's hands, but at least they ditched that advertising moniker, which was never so inappropriate). The mobile Pipex. And there's a lesson for BT.

We see things not as they are, but as we are .

FT?

The OP was asking about effect on users, like routers, not the commercial ramifications.

Abysmal customer service for starters. Technical help = awful. and an increase in desire to change ISPs..... That's just for starters!!!

Freeserve> BTADSL 512k > 1Mb> ADSL Max (rubbish) > Be ADSL2+ (Brilliant ISP) 8mb> BT Broadband 5Mb >]Bt Infinity 2 - Was 75 / 18 for 4 weeks now 53 / 12 @ 200m - 250m.... :/
