Nethys makes merger bid for Brutele as defense against Telenet

Thursday 21 June 2018 | 10:19 CET | News
The board of directors of Nethys, based in Liege, has made a bid to merge with Brussels cable provider Brutele, De Tijd reported, citing anonymous sources, which said a deal may be reached in the coming days. The offer came after Belgian operator Telenet made a fresh offer for Brutele, which is active in six Brussels municipalities where Telenet is not present. Telenet confirmed the report, but declined to provide further details. The operator had already made a bid for Voo, which includes both Nethys' cable assets in Wallonia and Brutele, in April.
