  • BT

    We’re BT, one of the world’s leading technology companies. We design products and services, so you can do more than ever before. 

    We have more than 1,800 public sector customers throughout the UK. So we understand the issues local government organisations are facing, from the pressure to do more with shrinking budgets, to creating cutting-edge services that comply with changing regulations. No UK tech company invests more in R&D than us. So we’re in a strong position to not only support local governments with their digital transformation programmes, but help them get ahead of the curve without disrupting their vital services or shattering their budget. 

    Our track record proves it; we were first to launch 5G, and our 4G mobile network reaches further, and covers more places, than any other in the UK. We work with local authorities, regional agencies and others, to develop next generation broadband solutions. We connect the UK's emergency services, handling more than 32 million 999 calls every year. And we're a trusted partner of the MoD, police and other critical services. 

    As a technology partner, we’ll work with you to improve the flow of information between your people and your organisations. By driving efficiencies and working together, we can help you do more for less. Quickly and securely. And that will have a big impact on the lives of the constituents you serve – helping them do more, too.
