Discussions between Vodafone and BT regarding an agreement on fibre broadband services are ongoing, but remain some way off delivering any concrete results.
Vittorio Colao, the outgoing Chief Executive Officer of Vodafone Group, discussed this and other aspects of the company's plans to provide next-generation broadband and mobile infrastructure at an investors' meeting, ISPreview reported.
Last year, there was talk of Vodafone and BT working together on a co-investment deal to improve the availability of fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) technology delivering broadband speeds of up to 1Gbps to urban areas across the UK.
Mr Colao said there has been "a bit of movement" in the discussions, but admitted that "it's not enough".
"It's just managing our movement, not yet what we need to really have them in the right place," he commented. "But we will continue and we're engaged in the discussion."
Vodafone is also involved in an FTTP rollout with network infrastructure provider CityFibre, which has set a target of reaching five million homes and businesses by 2025.
