1 24/7 Changes at Swansea September 2012
2 …..we recently signed a big deal to supply Mobile Ethernet Access to the first 4G provider MBNL – Mobile Broadband Network Limited Owned by ThreeUk (H3G) and Everything Everywhere (EE). EE have the biggest influence on the contract at the moment due to their 4G licence agreement. BT is a supplier into MBNL along with Ericsson and NSN. BTW own the commercial contact between BT and MBNL. New deal 2 year deal signed formally in July worth about £200m revenue This is important because it could lead to more value-add work in the mobile sector (i.e. upgrade existing MEAS sites) We have received almost double the volume of orders expected.
