O2 to get Smart?

7 Apr 2008

Ireland’s Sunday Independent newspaper claims that O2 is in advanced discussions with Smart Telecom with a view to acquiring the mobile and broadband operator. The report, citing unnamed ‘industry insiders’, says that talks have been ongoing for several weeks after the Telefonica-owned company submitted an all-cash offer. An agreement could be signed by the end of next week.
