He said of Allera that the "drive for simplicity and focus on the customer will help increase loyalty among the more than 30 million users now served by the combined brands in the UK".

BT's consumer converged package "BT Plus" is meant to bring together home broadband, mobile and Wi-Fi capabilities into one converged plan. BT Plus customers will benefit from the fastest speeds from BT on broadband and mobile.

EE is launching new converged ultrafast home broadband plans over broadband (FTTP, G.fast) and 4G, which include 4GEE Backup and Home Move, keeping customers connected if there are issues with their connection or when they're moving house.

After months of trials of co-selling BT branded broadband and TV in selected EE stores, Allera confirmed that the brand would be returning to the high street permanently with dedicated displays in all 620 stores.
