BT has secured a three-year contract to provide broadband internet connections linking 1,000 UK British Red Cross sites.
The deal is designed to allow the volunteer organisation to improve internet and intranet communication for its main sites, independent outposts and 40,000 volunteers.
Steve Gallimore, head of infrastructure at the British Red Cross, said: "Communications are vital to us because we are often trying to save lives.
"Broadband is a necessity for us, and we chose BT for its coverage and our great relationship with the company."
Danny McLaughlin, managing director of major business at BT, added: "Some Red Cross sites had limited phone and ISDN connectivity and needed a way to increase efficiency and the communication between its volunteers across the UK."
