Vodafone reportedly considering T-Mobile UK bid

29 Jun 2009

According to the Financial Times which cites people familiar with the situation, Vodafone Group is reportedly considering a bid for T-Mobile UK. Were Vodafone to acquire the Deutsche Telekom subsidiary, the newly enlarged entity would achieve a market share of more than 40%, leapfrogging O2 UK as the country’s largest cellco. However, any such deal could be stopped by anti-competition regulators. Earlier this month France Telecom dismissed suggestions that it was planning to make an offer for T-Mobile UK.
