The General Post Office (GPO) was the state-owned postal system of the Kingdom of England and – after the Acts of Union of 1707 – of the United Kingdom, from 1660 to 1969. In 1969, the GPO was abolished and the assets transferred to The Post Office (Royal Mail) — changing it from state-owned company to a statutory corporation. In 1980, the telecommunications and postal activities were split. Following the British Telecommunications Act of 1981, the telecommunications side was converted into a seperate publicly owned corporation under the name British Telecom (BT).
