Last week in telecoms: satellite, Sky, Vodafone and Italy in focus

Monday 16 July 2018 | 07:30 CET | News
Sky was at the centre of attention once more in the ongoing battle between Walt Disney and Comcast. The recent entry of Iliad on the Italian market keeps giving rise to competitors repositioning their commercial offers. And in the UK both BT and TalkTalk were under fire over corporate governance issues. All in all, our European telecoms index lost 1.4 percent during week 28, versus a slight 0.2 percent gain for the EuroStoxx 50 index.
