Bob Fuller, chief executive of Telewest's cable division, is to quit the company to head Hutchison Whampoa's 3G business in Italy.

The former COO of Orange UK joined Telewest in December 2000 after the mobile operator was acquired by France Telecom.

Said Fuller, no doubt armed with plenty of towels and boiling water: "The birth of 3G is undoubtedly the most exciting development in the wireless industry since mobile phones became a mass-market phenomenon."

Adam Singer, Telewest group CE, added that the cable division was "performing well" and that "all the key operational indicators show we are continuing to make good headway in the TV, telephony and broadband markets."

Earlier this week Telewest announced it had teamed up with cableco, NTL, to promote broadband in the UK. ®
