T-Mobile Netherlands not for sale - DT CEO

Monday 22 February 2016 | 10:45 CET | News
T-Mobile Netherlands is not for sale, and its parent company Deutsche Telekom does not want to pursue a sale at the moment, CEO Tim Hoettges told Bloomberg TV. He added that the company didn't fear the proposed merger of rivals Vodafone Netherlands and Ziggo, saying "we love competition". T-Mobile is well-prepared to meet the competition with its new 4G network, he said. The CEO did acknowledge that consolidation is needed in Europe. His comments follow repeated reports that DT has considered a sale of the Dutch subsidiary, although it has never confirmed the plans.
