BT claims to be the world’s oldest communications company and they date back to the Electric Telegraph Company of 1846. British Telecom (as it was formerly known) was formerly part of the Post Office which in turn was a UK government department. BT became a public limited company (plc) in 1984. It now has more than 4.6 million subscribers (including PlusNet, which it owns) to its BT Total Broadband products, which it runs in partnership with Yahoo!
