DT declines to comment on Virgin Mobile rumour

18 Jan 2006

German incumbent Deutsche Telekom (DT) has said it will not comment on speculation that it is considering buying UK MVNO Virgin Mobile. Virgin Mobile is currently preparing for a takeover bid from cable operator NTL, but market speculation has emerged that DT may launch a counter bid for the cellco as part of a plan to strengthen its own mobile business in the country. Virgin Mobile offers services in the UK over T-Mobile’s network.
