Tuesday 25 September 2018 | 13:36 CET | News
Sunrise is one of the Swiss operators being looked at as a potential partner for Liberty Global, owner of UPC Switzerland, said Mike Fries, CEO of the cable giant. Liberty Global is focused on improving its network and product, while also "playing on the side with some opportunities," Fries said in a Bloomberg Television interview. Asked whether a deal with Sunrise was a possibility, he said, "There aren't many operators in the market, so that would be one of them."
