Deutsche Telekom will not sell its subsidiary T-Mobile US to French operator Iliad, according to Teltarif.de, citing insider information. According to new information, Telekom has taken back its offer for sale and will keep the subsidiary for at least another year. Teltarif said this could be because T-Mobile US is currently winning new customers, but insiders said another reason could be that Deutsche Telekom is unsatisfied with Iliad's offer and could be waiting for bids from other cable and TV providers in the US.
