Friday 15 March 2019 | 09:46 CET | News
Spanish regional operator Euskaltel announced that its board of directors has decided to merge its Telecable brand in Asturias and R brand in Galicia into a single company. The aim is to enhance the group's future competitiveness and growth potential as well as to improve customer service, said the northern Spain-focused operator. It acquired Telecable Asturias from UK-based telecom investment vehicle Zegona for EUR 686 million in July 2017 after buying Galician cable provider R for a total of EUR 1.19 billion in November 2015.
