Takeaway delivery company Just Eat says its orders have grown 43% in the UK after it added 800 McDonald’s restaurants and 300 Greggs outlets to its network.

The company also credited the impact of lockdown after it delivered 46 million UK orders between July and September.

It said more diners were working from home and avoiding outside contact.

The firm, which merged with Dutch rival Takeaway.com in February, expects to see more growth this autumn and winter.

The group also saw demand rise in markets like Germany, Canada and Australia, booking 151.4 million orders worldwide in the third quarter – a rise of 46%.

“Further lockdown restrictions across the continent and the UK should keep demand on the up,” said Neil Wilson, chief market analyst for Markets.com.

McDonalds
Just Eat added 800 McDonald’s restaurants and 300 Greggs locations to its network.

Just Eat’s shareholders approved the $7.3bn (£5.75bn) takeover of US rival Grubhub earlier this month. The deal should be completed early next year.

It made the purchase after plans for a merger between Grubhub and Uber collapsed amid competition scrutiny.

In August, Just Eat’s boss Jitse Groen told the BBC he intended to end gig working at his company across Europe.

He said he would rather run his company with staff who get benefits and more workplace protection.

It is the model he has used at the Takeaway.com part of the business he founded 20 years ago.

Gig workers have flexible hours but normally not benefits like holiday pay.

On Wednesday, shares in Just Eat Takeway.com rose 5.8% in London to £93.52 each.

Australia’s telco and energy sectors agree to boost infrastructure resiliency

Communications Alliance and Energy Networks Australia (ENA) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to improve the way the two sectors collaborate and share knowledge when responding to emergency situations.

Under the MoU, the pair have agreed to improve the safety of communities by mitigating risks caused by telecommunications or power outages during emergencies, as well as the sustainability of telecommunications and power supply services to communities affected by emergencies to support their recovery.

The MoU also sets out that the two sectors will collaborate and coordinate on preparing telecommunications and electricity networks and infrastructure for responding to emergencies at local, regional, and state level.

A report prepared by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) in May found that during the peak period of the Black Summer bushfires, most telecommunication outages were due to power failures rather than direct fire damage to communication assets.

The report found that during the period from 19 December 2019 to 31 January 2020, only 3% of tower outages were due to fire damage, and of the 1,390 total facilities that were impacted by the fires outages, only 1% of incidents were a direct result of fire damage.

Similar findings were disclosed by the company responsible for deploying the National Broadband Network (NBN) across Australia. In June, NBN revealed in response to Senate Estimates Question on Notice that bushfires impacted 1% of all NBN services.

“12% (or 6,367 services) of all services impacted were directly impacted by fire over the duration of the bushfires,” the company said at the time.

“The remaining services were impacted by power outages as a result of the bushfires.”

The federal government has previously announced it would spend AU$37.1 million to improve the resiliency of the nation’s
