EU antitrust regulator set to investigate Deutsche Telekom

Резюме

Deutsche Telekom is set to face a four-month investigation by EU antitrust regulators into its bid to buy the Dutch business of Swedish peer Tele2, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters last Tuesday. Deutsche Telekom wants to buy Tele2's Dutch assets and combine them with its T-Mobile Nederland, enabling it to better compete with local rivals KPN and Ziggo. Stiff opposition from the EU competition enforcer scuppered a plan by TeliaSonera and Telenor to merge their businesses in Denmark in 2015.
