Telefonica has improved its offer to secure EU anti-trust approval for the merger of Telefonica Deutschland and E-Plus, but stopped short of giving up extra spectrum or customers to a new German mobile network operator. According to a confidential concession package seen by the Financial Times, Telefonica has offered to provide a rival operator with access to an urban Wi-Fi network that operates on Telefonica infrastructure. This is on top of an offer to allow a new rival mobile service to operate on its network nationwide.
