The German Cartel Office continues to have competition concerns about the planned fibre joint benture between the regional operator Ewe Tel and Deutsche Telekom.  The regulator is examining whether conditions may be necessary for the cooperation between Telekom and Ewe to ensure the access by third parties, said the President Andreas Mundt to Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ). Therefore, the deadline to end the investigation of the deal has been extended until 21 August, Die Welt reports.
