Scottish Telecom, the telecomms arm of Scottish Power, has launched a region-wide move into the residential telephone market currently sewn-up by BT. It says it will undercut BT?s charges by up to 25 per cent.
The company, which already counts 200 corporate customers, invested #100 million over the past three years installing fibre optic cables alongside Scottish Power?s overhead power lines. It will use a mixture of conventional and radio-based networks deliver services to residential and small business customers.
Scottish Telecom was created in 1994 out of the Scottish Power group which manages its internal telecomms network.
Chief executive Rod Matthews said: ?Until now, householders have never had a real alternative when it came to choosing their telephone provider.
"Although some new entrants can service small geographic pockets, this is the first time that anyone has pledged to connect residential and small business customers all over Scotland and provide them with a better, less expensive service.?
