24 Nov 2006

The CEO of Hutchison Whampoa’s Italian 3G operator 3 Italia says the firm is not for sale. Vincenzo Novari commented in a statement: ‘Many would like to buy it, but the answer is the same for all of them: 3 Italia is not for sale.’ There has been speculation that Hong Kong-based Hutchison is considering selling off its 3G operations across Europe, with Dow Jones reporting that the likes of Vodafone and Orange have already been linked as possible buyers.
