3 outperforms in Italian market as merger looks increasingly uncertain

Thursday 12 May 2016 | 15:25 CET | Author: Alejandra van de Roer | Background
The proposed merger of the Italian subsidiaries of VimpelCom (Wind) and Hutchison (3 Italia) appears increasingly unlikely following the EC's latest decision to block a similar deal in the UK market. The latest figures from Telecompaper show that 3 Italia is outperforming the other Italian MNOs, but it still faces an uphill battle as the smallest player, with around half the market share of its closest rival.
