Last week in telecoms: earnings reports, Virgin Media migrates its MVNO, Deutsche Telekom sees T-Mobile US merger progress

Monday 11 November 2019 | 07:00 CET | News
The Telecompaper European Telecoms Services index was down 0.3 percent in week 45, versus a gain of 2.1 percent for the EuroStoxx 50 index. The week was heavy with earnings reports, with some M&A news. Tele Columbus was the best stock to own last week, up 15 percent. At a closing price of EUR 2.45 it has come off considerably from its low of EUR 1.29 in early June. BT's loss of 8.0 percent put it among the week's worst losers. The company stands to lose Virgin Mobile as a MVNO customer from 2021.
