DT may follow T-Mobile US strategy in Netherlands - report

Monday 11 April 2016 | 08:55 CET | News
Deutsche Telekom is considering following in the Netherlands the same 'uncarrier' strategy as its T-Mobile US unit, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg. The disruptive challenger strategy is under consideration as T-Mobile has struggled to keep up with its two bigger rivals, KPN and Vodafone, and an earlier attempt to sell the Dutch unit failed. The option is one of several and the German carrier may decide against it, the report said.
