O2 grows SME and corporate sales
O2 has grown its SME sales by 6% and its corporate sales by
3% during the last quarter, according to the network's business
sales director Ben Dowd.
'In a tough environment we have performed well in both SME and
corporate, even though the overall market was down,' Dowd said.
O2 successfully delivered in the public sector and health sector
- where the company doubled business, Dowd said.
The operator said its Joined Up proposition had exceeded its
expectations, while 85% of its SME sales were both fixed and
O2's Approved programme achieved 28% growth during the period,
maintaining 1% churn.
He added: 'There is still growth in email and apps, and in sub
sectors such as education. Local authorities have also been a
focus area, with one to be announced in April.'
