The UK telecom firm will offer Enterprise Fixed Mobile Convergence: It’s a fancy name that means dual-mode phones (GSM, GPRS, or 3G + Wi-Fi) will be able to make calls at a subscriber’s office or at BT Wi-Fi hotspots. The calls will be free within the office and at a much lower tariff elsewhere. Vodafone’s network will provide cell service, and Alcatel will provide the equipment.
BT won’t provide guidance on the service, which they expect to launch early next year, but a similar servic in France runs €9.99 for activation and €29.99 per month for broadband Internet, TV, and VoIP, or about $40 per month.
