Telefonica CR may change name to M Telecom

Friday 14 March 2014 | 09:24 CET | News
Following the purchase of Telefonica Czech Republic by the private equity group PPF, the Czech operator may change its trade name this year, although it can keep the brand O2 for four years. As the daily Sme.sk reported in February, PPF was supposed to propose the new name M Telecom for Telefonica during the shareholders meeting. However, after the shareholders meeting the name remains unchanged.  The change may occur either during the next shareholders meeting in June or before that, reports Mobilnet.cz.
