BT deal to buy InLink
BT has bought Manchesterbased communications service provider InLink for an undisclosed sum after it went into administration last year.
InLink, established in 2017, provides free Wi-Fi, access maps, directions, and USB charging to nearly half a million people across the UK every week through its kiosks.
Terms of the deal mean all 494 units across the country will come under BT control.
The acquisition comes after Sarah Bell and Steven Muncaster of global advisor Duff & Phelps were appointed joint administrators on November 26.
Mr Muncaster said: “BT has effectively taken InLink Limited out of administration, ensuring that existing InLink services continue to operate as normal – including access to the UK’s fastest free public WiFi, free phone calls, mobile device charging, a 999 calling button and an app to contact charity helplines.”
