BT named as sixth new i3forum member in six months
The not-for-profit industry body i3forum has added its sixth member organisation in six months, with BT now officially on the roll call.
Established to “enable and accelerate” transformation between international carriers, i3forum members promote industrywide collaborations with an “open and inclusive model focusing on enabling success and digital transformation in a changing market”.

“At BT, we’re committed to supporting transformation within our customers’ businesses as well as the carrier industry as a whole. We look forward to contributing to the i3forum’s workgroups and initiatives while collaborating with some of the most innovative carriers in the industry,” said Colin Dougan, head of global wholesale voice at BT.
“This is an opportunity to learn, share and drive our industry forward,” he added.
BT will share its industry knowledge and collaborate with more than 25 carriers to solve technical and business challenges. As a member it joins CLEAR, DIGICEL and LANCK TELECOM, VNPT, Risk and Assurance Group.
“It is an exciting time for the i3forum. We’re seeing our membership diversify and the addition of BT will benefit our members as well as the entire carrier industry. We look forward to BT’s contributions to our work groups and sharing its expertise in the international Wholesale market,” said Philippe Millet, chairman at i3forum (pictured).
