BT is one of the world’s biggest communications and IT services companies. With a significant operation in Northern Ireland, it caters for all customer segments - consumers, businesses, government and other communications companies – and offers an extensive and diverse portfolio of services ranging from superfast broadband and TV for homes, to cloud-based services, unified communications, security, and IT services for organisations.

BT Northern Ireland has attracted major inward investment from BT Group for two digital care centres of excellence, a global research and development centre and a flexible resource centre.

The company has invested directly in infrastructure roll-out and also in partnership with the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment. It says that 90% of all phone lines in Northern Ireland are now connected to a fibre enabled street cabinet, putting the province ahead of the majority of European countries. Also, as part of that investment, Derry City is the first city in the UK and Ireland to have 100% of its street cabinets upgraded to fibre technology.

In the last year its headcount has risen by 40.
