The operators already partner in the UK with Everything Everywhere and plan to jointly deploy their 4G network in Poland, which will save several hundreds of million euros by 2015. Deutsche Telekom does not want to commit itself to France Telecom for more countries as it is looking for network partners in all 13 countries where it is active, according to a spokesperson.
