Last week in telecoms: KCom accepts higher offer, Tele2 and BT sign partnerships, Norway completes auction

Monday 10 June 2019 | 07:00 CET | News
In a week of high stock market volatility, the news flow from the telecom services sector was relatively light. KCom, the local British incumbent accepted a higher takeover offer, Tele2 signed a network sharing deal for the Baltics and BT signed a deal with Cellnex. Polish shares did especially well in week 23. Our index ended the week up 1.2 percent, behind the EuroStoxx 50's 3.0 percent gain.
