O2 UK and Vodafone UK are in talks on renegotiating the terms of their network-sharing venture Cornerstone, reports The Telegraph. In place since 2012, the joint venture puts Vodafone in charge of developing the network in the west of the country and O2 handles the east, while each retains autonomy in the London region. Citing "senior industry sources", the paper said Vodafone is frustrated with O2's slow pace of network maintenance and wants more freedom to develop its network on its own, especially in big cities, in order to meet increasing demand from customers for better quality coverage.
