Telefónica, the parent company of O2, has entered into exclusive talks with Hutchison Whampoa about the potential takeover of O2 UK.
It’s proposed a deal worth £10.25 billion in cash.
CEO says "It's not about who's got the most coverage"
Vodafone has published a blog post in which it talks to UK CEO Jeroen Hoencamp about 4G LTE coverage. The network notes that it currently covers around 50% of the UK population with its 4G service.
And its CEO insists that the 4G rollout is progressing at its current speed for very specific reasons.
EE, which is currently talking to BT about a possible takeover deal, says it added 5.7 million customers to its 4G UK network in 2014.
This gives it a total of 7.7 million customers, beating its year-end target of 6 million.
TalkTalk Group, which started life as part of Carphone Warehouse before demerging in 2010, has bought the Tesco broadband and fixed-line voice base from Tesco plc.
This gives it around 75,000 broadband customers and around 20,000 voice customers, which will be transferred to the TalkTalk network.
EE has acquired UK distributor Mainline Communications Group.
The network operator already owned 26% of Mainline and had worked with the business for many years. The Mainline brand will continue but as a wholly-owned subsidiary of EE.
