Is British Telecom eyeing a U.S. mobile operator?

Comments from British Telecom have set off speculation that the company may seek the partnership or acquisition of a U.S. mobile operator. BT CEO Ben Verwaayen was quoted in a Belgian financial publication, De Tijd, as saying that BT is looking at buying properties in Southeast Asia, the U.S., Germany and France. The company, which has aggressively come out of the gate with fixed-mobile converged services through its BT Fusion offering, has already teamed with Vodafone and KPN to deliver corporate services to clients in Europe. It needs to fill a hole in the U.S. market.
