U.K. lawmakers push to split BT

Regulatory action may be taken against British Telecommunications in an attempt to increase competition in the United Kingdom's broadband market, according to an influential group of lawmakers. The select committee has urged the Office of Telecommunications--the U.K. telecom regulator known as Oftel--and its forthcoming replacement, the Office of Communications (OFCOM), to consider separating BT's network business from the rest of the company. The network is BT's physical infrastructure--including local exchanges and cables--as opposed to its service-based operations, such as BTopenworld. One of the benefits of this separation, the committee believes, is that it might bring down broadband prices. The committee's advice was delivered in a report published Wednesday; it echoes a widespread belief among BT's competitors, which say broadband prices would likely fall if a third party owned BT's fixed-line network.

Dell laptops to hold GPRS wireless

LONDON--Dell Computer customers in the United Kingdom will soon have notebooks equipped with wide-area wireless access. From mid-March, U.K. consumers will be able to order laptops with GPRS (Global Packet Radio Service) connections that provide always-on, wide-area wireless access to the company network or the Internet. The key benefits will be the ability to send and receive e-mail, browse the Web, and access corporate databases from almost anywhere in the United Kingdom. Later, as roaming agreements fall into place, the service also will be available in other European countries. --Charles McLellan, ZDUK
