Top three mobile application threats

Some of the biggest names in the telecoms industry are meeting up next week for a charity pub quiz in aid of the Samaritans.

The press offices of AOL UK, Freeserve, NTL, Telewest, BT, Oftel, Hutchison, Vodafone, T-Mobile, Orange and O2 are among those who will suspend hostilities for a couple of hours so they can battle it out to find who's the brainiest of the bunch.

Each of the 17 teams taking part is forking out £100 to take part in the quiz, with all the cash being punted to the Samaritans.

Last year, One-2-One (now T-Mobile) swept the board. This year the competition is expected to be much tougher, although mobile outfit O2 has already been branded rank outsiders.

BT remains quietly confident about its chances, especially if some of the questions related to its specialist subject - "principles of fixed line telecommunications regulatory framework theories". ®
