Closer cooperation between Deutsche Telekom, France Telecom makes sense

Tuesday 15 February 2011 | 15:51 CET | Author: Corina Schultz | Market Commentary
Deutsche Telekom and France Telecom are intensifying their cooperation. In the UK, they have already merged their mobile operations in a joint venture, and a number of other joint projects are underway, such as network sharing and product development. One can wonder why a merger hasn't already been announced. The overlap is limited, as they are not active on each other's home markets and the geographic focus is reasonably divided.
