3 UK CEO rules out possible move for O2

Tuesday 1 April 2014 | 15:09 CET | News
3 UK CEO Dave Dyson said the company has no plans to push for more consolidation in the UK market, reports The Telegraph. He said that he was comfortable with 3 UK's position, insisting that it was not looking to acquire or be acquired. His comments pour cold water on speculation that 3 UK could make a bid for O2, copying a similar move in Ireland. Dyson added that the operator had established a strong position in the UK, with 8 million customers and revenue of GBP 2 billion, and did not need to consolidate with anybody.
