Wednesday 30 May 2012 | 12:00 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
While America Movil has officially launched its bid for a large minority stake in KPN, the rumour mill continues to generate stories on possible asset sales at KPN. The latest story from Dutch paper De Telegraaf focuses on its Belgian mobile operator Base, which has reportedly attracted the interest of cable company Telenet. Other reports continue to highlight America Movil's supposed interest in Telekom Austria.
