Telenet seeks partner; could be Voo

28 Feb 2011

Belgian cableco Telenet is to seek areas of agreement and partnership with fellow cable operator Voo, reports Reuters quoting remarks made by Telenet’s CEO in a newspaper interview. Cooperation between the two operators would make sense as they do not compete in one another’s footprint. However, industry watchers are sceptical as to whether any such tie-up would be approved by regulators. Telenet revealed earlier this month that it was considering a bid for the Brussels-based unit of French cableco Numericable. Telenet currently controls the northern region of Flanders, while Numericable is active in Brussels with Voo providing services in the southern region of Wallonia.
