UK - Vodafone makes broadband move

Mobile phone operator Vodafone is to enter the UK fixed-line broadband market after striking a deal to use infrastructure from BT. The contract means Vodafone does not have to invest in a fixed-line network of its own. Vodafone hopes to launch the new service before the end of the year. The move will enable its customers to benefit from bundled packages of mobile and broadband services nationwide.
