Ziggo, T-Mobile merger moves closer to reality

Wednesday 21 October 2015 | 16:37 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary

A sale is not unexpected, and Liberty Global is the most obvious buyer. While the number of operators would not change in that case, it would still have far-reaching consequences for the Dutch market.
