Company Background

BT Group dates back to the 1840s and the early days of the telegraph. The UK government took control of the multitude of companies that sprang up and housed them under the Post Office government branch -- then a major department of government. The Post Office telecommunications activities were renamed British Telecom (BT) in 1980, and separated out from the Post Office -- by that point a nationalized industry rather than government department -- in 1981. BT was privatized in 1984 and the telecom market was opened to competition. British Telecom became BT in 1991. In 2005, Ofcom, the regulator, ordered the creation of Openreach, a BT Group company tasked with the management of the UK's telecom infrastructure and allowing unbiased access for rival telecom companies. The company acquired EE in 2016 and became the UK's biggest mobile network.
