From Total Telecom magazine deputy editor Joanne Taaffe:
Cable & Wireless has already set up a clear structural divide between its UK and international division, but now the company is in the process of changing email handles for international staff.
This made one Cable & Wireless manager, who spoke to Total Telecom, wonder whether the company is getting ready to spin off its international division, as speculated, or whether it will keep on milking cash cow mobile operations in places like the Caribbean.
Given that the company’s international assets are compiled of small, if lucrative, operations scattered across the globe, C&W may have trouble finding a buyer for everything. But if it isn’t selling it may be time to start reassuring staff and investing in operations.
