Britain's BT to pull out of retailer Dixons Carphone

LONDON, Sept 11 (Reuters) - Britain’s BT said on Friday its mobile network EE would not renew its contract with retailer Dixons Carphone, and would instead focus on its own online and retail channels.

“After more than 20 years of close partnership, we have taken the hard decision to not renew our EE Mobile contract with Dixons Carphone, and shift our focus and investment to growth in our own stores and online channels,” BT said in a statement.

“This has not been an easy decision to take and follows many months of challenging discussions and negotiation.”
