Swisscom to blame for collapse of merger talks

23 Aug 2004

According to the Financial Times, the ending of merger talks between Swisscom and Telekom Austria came about because Swisscom requested a two-month delay before committing to the merger. The Swiss operator did a similar thing earlier this year, pulling out of a deal to buy German phone and internet provider BerlinKomm at the last minute.
