Last week in telecoms: a superdividend, 5G and regulations

Monday 6 August 2018 | 09:39 CET | News
Last week, the European telecoms stocks mostly moved into negative territory, led by Altice and Iliad. Telenet and most satellite shares had a positive week and with the help of the index heavyweights, Deutsche Telekom and Vodafone, an overall loss was avoided. Our index was flat for the week against a loss of 1.3 percent for the Eurostoxx 50 index.
