‘For O2 there are 514 connections (made up of mobiles, Blackberries and data cards); for Vodafone 13 connections (made up of mobiles, blackberries and data cards). For EE there is one mobile connection and T Mobile nine connections (mobiles only).’

Ofcom explained that it uses the Crown Commercial Services Framework agreement for mobile telephony.

Ten lots for the Network Services Framework were up for grabs, including mobile voice and data, call centres, CCTV and telephony systems.
