TIM and Open Fiber discussing tie-up but Enel in no hurry

Friday 2 August 2019 | 12:12 CET | News
Negotiations between TIM and the Open Fiber wholesale venture of utility giant Enel and state lender Cassa Depositi e Prestiti (CDP) remain ongoing but Enel's chief executive Francesco Starace said he was prepared to take his time to work on a broadband deal. "We have no hurry, no rush. We have no burning house," said Starace following the publication of Enel's quarterly results. "We don't want to get into the antitrust loops that an integrated combination might come up with," he added, according to Reuters.
