Telekom Austria, America Movil start wholesale deal

VIENNA, May 9 (Reuters) - Telekom Austria and its future owner America Movil have started a wholesale partnership combining their network infrastructure in the Americas and Europe, the Austrian group said on Friday.

Under the deal announced on Friday, the companies will build a fibre link between Miami and Vienna to connect their networks for voice, roaming, data and mobile services in 47 countries.

Telekom Austria and Dutch KPN, the other European operator in which America Movil has made a large investment, announced a similar deal last August.
