Re Agreement

mmO2 PLC
11 April 2002


                                    WITH IBM

Released: 11 April 2002

mmO2 today announced that its UK business, BT Cellnet, has signed a 10-year
strategic IT agreement with IBM, worth up to £50 million (€77.5 million) in its
first year.

BT Cellnet aims to build world-class customer service and business support
capability, and has chosen IBM Global Services to design, build and manage the
IT systems infrastructure to support its development of voice, text and mobile
Internet markets over the next decade.

The first phase of the agreement will focus on the integration of existing
systems during 2002, including the Genie Mobile service and process support for
customer care, e-payment, product and services development.

IBM will provide industry consultancy and systems integration, backed by IBM's
end-to-end programme management expertise and proven technology assets.

David McGlade, managing director of BT Cellnet, said: 'Our determination to
provide a customer experience which is second to none depends on the timely and
cost-effective delivery of operational capability. We believe this objective
will benefit tremendously from establishing a deep and long-term partnership
with IBM.'

Frank Kern, general manager, IBM Global Services, Europe, Middle East and
Africa, said: 'As mobile operators increasingly move to 2.5G and 3G data-centric
services, IT systems now take centre stage. Wireless e-business presents
operators with opportunities to transform their business but creates technology
challenges that few IT vendors are equipped to resolve. IBM's alliance with BT
Cellnet provides a robust infrastructure designed specifically to handle the
radical changes that the wireless data services marketplace will present in
coming years.'



mmO2 has 100% ownership of mobile network operators in four countries: the UK
(BT Cellnet), Germany (Viag Interkom), the Netherlands (Telfort Mobiel), and
Ireland (Digifone). Additionally it has operations on the Isle of Man (Manx
Telecom) and a leading mobile internet portal business, Genie. Its businesses
will be re-branded as O2 from Spring 2002.

mmO2 was the first company in the world to launch and rollout a commercial GPRS
(or 2.5G) network and has secured third generation mobile telephony ('3G')
licences in the UK, the Netherlands, and Germany. mmO2 has also applied for a 3G
licence in Ireland.

mmO2 has approximately 17.25 million customers and some 15,000 employees, with
revenues for the year ended 31 March 2001 of £3.2 billion. Data represented
12.8% of total service revenues in the quarter ending December 31, 2001.
