BT to add ATMs to phone kiosks

UK telco BT is planning to add cash machines to its phone boxes in a bid to attract more customers, according to a report by the BBC.

The report says that BT has applied for some of its phone kioks in Cardiff to be decked out with banking facilities following a fall in the number of people using them. The telco will be teaming with various financial services firms to offer the service.

The planned kiosks will include a cash machine as well as a telephone and will replace existing phones at four sites in Cardiff.

A BT spokesman told BBC reporters that around around two thirds of phone boxes in the UK are unprofitable due to the growing use of mobile phones.

He says around 60 phone/ATM kioks are expected to be rolled out across the UK in a trial.
