Say goodbye to the old FT.com…

Shared from: http://enterprise.ft.com/en-gb/blog/say-goodbye-old-ftcom/

Because the new FT.com is here.

Our new website which is faster, clearer and completely mobile-optimised, will become your default FT.com on 5th October.
Throughout 2016, our subscribers have been invited to try out the new site and provide feedback. This feedback has been used to optimise the site and provide an experience that is completely tailored to your needs.
If you haven’t experienced the new FT.com yet, here is what you can look forward to from the 5th of October:

  • Completely mobile optimised – offering a consistent and enjoyable experience across all devices
  • Pages load up to 2.5x faster than before – bringing your the same trusted news and insight you rely on, but faster
  • Personalisation and time-saving tools – with myFT you can add and track your topics of interest, save articles to read later and set up instant, daily or weekly email digests on the topics you follow – all in one place.

We hope you enjoy using our new website. Our customer service team is on hand should you or your team need help or have any questions.
