1 Dec 2006

Turkcell will bid for a controlling stake in Greek mobile operator TIM Hellas, Turkey’s leading cellco confirmed late on Wednesday in a statement to the local stock market regulator. Turkcell, which faces increased competition at home, had said earlier this month it was interested in Greece’s third largest GSM player, whilst UAE-based telco Etisalat is also still in the running.
