BT has generated £80 million for the Dorset economy in the past year according to an independent report published today.

The research is by Regeneris Consulting.

It also shows the communications giant supports more than one thousand jobs across the county through direct employment and through its spending with contractors and suppliers.

Jon Reynolds, BT's South West regional director, said: "BT and its employees make a major contribution to the Dorset economy. They are a key part of its prosperity and economic well-being. BT is at the centre of every community and our day-to-day work benefits every local authority area right across the UK.

"I'm also well aware that BT people throughout the county really want to contribute in a positive way to the communities in which they live and work. Every day BT employees help millions of people to communicate, do business, be entertained and stay informed.

"But BT's role in Dorset and the South West region as a whole is more significant than even these massive figures suggest. In addition to the activities analysed in this comprehensive report, we are creating a high-speed fibre broadband network which will be essential to the future success of local businesses and households. The potential benefits to the region offered by that network are huge by any standards."
