British Telecom mulling WiMAX play in the U.K.

According to a report in the Financial Times, British Telecom's CEO designate, Ian Livingston, said BT is mulling whether to invest in WiMAX. BT has considered such an investment for a few years now. Currently, BT's wireless service makes use of Vodafone's network, so a WiMAX network of its own would allow the company to better direct its wireless strategy. With the 2.6 GHz spectrum auction coming up in the U.K., all eyes are on BT to see whether it will bid to win spectrum to ultimately build a WiMAX network. BT, however, told the Financial Times that it has made no commitment to either bidding in the auction or to pursuing a WiMAX network.
