BT has picked Global to handle advertising for all of its street furniture across the UK, including its payphones and Wi-Fi-enabled units.

The three-year deal covers print and digital advertising across BT’s network of 18,500 units, as well as any new street furniture that BT installs.

It will allow Global to promote content from radio station LBC – a move that Global says will "deliver even more value to the local communities served by the units".

BT’s network is made up of 17,500 traditional KX payphone kiosks, 500 BT6 payphones and 500 digital screens that were previously called InLinkUK and allow people to make free phone calls and charge their mobile devices.

Katherine Ainley, managing director of ventures at BT, said: "Today’s deal with Global to support advertising sales across our street network is another milestone in the evolution of our future street strategy.

"Global has extensive experience of working across traditional and digital media for our existing estate, and have demonstrated a compelling vision for how we can work together in the future to innovate and grow our digital street presence."
