The result is BT Fusion, launched today.
BT Fusion is a mobile phone that uses mobile giant Vodafone Group PLC's UK network when out and about, but then - via a special access point (BT hub) installed in the home - switches automatically when indoors to a broadband line using Bluetooth.
"The announcement marks an important milestone in the broadband revolution, which is allowing people to communicate in ways they never have before,” said BT Retail chief Ian Livingstone.
BT Fusion will be be widely available in September.
"This is going to be a market that grows fantastically over time even though it might take a while to get going. We still expect many millions of converged handsets by the end of the decade,' Livingstone added.
