    Vodafone faces German probe over suspected obstruction of 1&1

    BERLIN (Reuters) -Vodafone and its German subsidiary Vantage Towers are facing an antitrust investigation in Germany over concerns that it may have contributed to United Internet subsidiary 1&1's sluggish roll-out of radio masts, the regulator said on Friday. Vodafone said in an emailed statement to Reuters that it continued to firmly reject the accusation and would cooperate closely with the authorities. 1&1 is trying to establish itself as a top telecommunications provider in Germany but has so far built only a fraction of its targeted 1,000 radio masts.

    Can the UK’s telco giants course correct?

    Philip Jansen, BT’s chief executive, told investors that “yes, it’s painful now” — referring to the company’s high expenditure on infrastructure upgrades and successive quarters of falling cash reserves. Earlier this month, BT and Vodafone, Britain’s second-largest telecoms operator, announced major restructuring plans, including about 60,000 job cuts across the two groups over the next few years. BT said it would reduce its headcount by up to 42 per cent by the end of the decade as its fibre build draws to a close and thousands of jobs become automated, while Vodafone said it would slash roughly 12 per cent of its global workforce over the next three years by simplifying its operations.

    LONDON (Reuters) -New Vodafone boss Margherita Della Valle said she would cut 11,000 jobs globally over three years to help the telecoms group regain its competitive edge after it warned that a poor performance in its biggest market Germany would hit cash flow.

    LONDON (Reuters) -CK Hutchison will likely finalise a deal on merging its Three UK mobile network with Vodafone's in Britain, its chief financial officer Frank John Sixt said, but getting the deal over the line was "extremely difficult".

    UK mobile users spending millions on smartphones they've already paid for, Virgin Media O2 says

    British consumers are spending 530 million pounds ($666 million) a year for smartphones they already own because they are not switching out of bundled contracts once their fixed term ends, research by mobile operator Virgin Media O2 (VMO2) showed on Friday. Mobile phone contracts typically bundle together a handset, such as an iPhone, with allowances of voice minutes, texts and data for a monthly fee for a period such as 24 months. But some customers fail to switch contracts after the handset has been paid off, despite being notified by their network.
