TeliaSonera, Telenor abandon Danish merger plans

Friday 11 September 2015 | 08:43 CET | News
TeliaSonera and Telenor have decided to abandon their plan to merge their operations in Denmark. The operators said in a statement that they were unable to reach agreement with the European Commission on acceptable conditions to meet its competition concerns. The joint venture agreed last December would have reduced Denmark from four to three mobile network operators. TeliaSonera and Telenor said they will continue now with their individual operations in Demark, which are still fully up and running, while reviewing their strategic options in the Danish market.
