Carphone walks away from Pipex, leaving BT as sole suitor?

12 Apr 2007

The auction for Pipex, the UK’s sixth-largest broadband provider, has been left hanging in the balance after Carphone Warehouse, the mobile phone and broadband retailer, was understood to have dropped out of the bidding. Carphone’s withdrawal appears to leave rival BT as the sole interested party for Pipex, after earlier interest from potential bidders including BSkyB and Virgin Media.
